SURPLUS, a collaboration of Magdalena Ptasznik and Marina Colomina.

With SURPLUS we are trying to activate perceptions, transfer to the b o d y the
e x p e r i e n c e of observing, give visibility to o t h e r w a y s of experience seeing by opening up the threshold of potentialities around our relation. We act within an observation setting that reshapes the experience of the body as a subject object in a recurrent r e c o n f i g u r a t i o n.

With SURPLUS we observe ourselves through the r e l a t i o n s that we establish. The work springs around sensitizing the body of the performers and spectators in order to mobilize the relation of oneself with the other in an event that makes visible its process, m u l t i p l e focuses and its construction.
