Cyborg Sunday proposes a fictional happening, on a fictional landscape, in an ambiguous future, far from easily recognisable representations and sci-fi spectacular expectations. How to open the possibilities of representation, as a strategy to open the own possibilities of futures. Far from any pretension of totality, a proposal of a landscape where pleasure is revalidated as a political idea and priority.
What can be a future landscape? What can be a happening in this fictional future, knowing that future is always a fiction in the process of becoming reality? And what and how can be a (human) body there? What can be a proposal for a possible life?
A performance is an invitation to a provisory proposal of a specific operativity. The world is not a stage but a stage is a room to try out, to test and to experiment worlds.
It happens on a fictional Sunday.
