In “Spotted” the body of the performers is captured as an overflowing container. So full that it can not anymore digest, make sense or work through all the external information it receives. As well as all that seeps into it without any subjective control or awareness. Numb and leaking, on the verge of passing as still lives, the performers make us question topics that relate to us directly such as privacy, intimacy, alienation and vulnerability.
"Spotted" is a grimace of discontinuity; a glimpse of perfect individuality; a perversion where the achievers are in a state of spiritual absence; an investigation of animated objects unable to overcome their singular being; this separation or this very drive – the constituent execution or exhaustion. -Stefan Remen
