migrena2X2 is a hybrid solo performance which exists in a confined space made of fragments of memory, introducing suspension and object manipulation. It is an abstract, contemporary interpretation of the story of biblical Jonah, embodying the notion of prophecy by exploring the subconscious, confronting traumas and fantasies. The burden of the performer is embodied by kettlebells, and its shedding unfolds through a ritual – between a prayer and a rave. An intensification of wild movement patterns causes the body to slowly deconstruct, decompose, melt and surrender to awaken an abstract material, a collective of limbs and organs devouring the space, emancipating hidden spaces and surfaces, reaching catharsis and eventually self recognition.
