The Owl in Daylight, 2015
with Pedro Moraes
Publication and Performance at San Serriffe, Amsterdam


The Owl in Daylight is originally the title of an unwritten book by Philip K. Dick. Having passing away during its process, the author had previously confessed the impossibility of its writing. The novel’s narrator comes from a place where there is no atmosphere, and having no sound whatsoever, speech has never been developed. Instead of words and verbal communication, telepathy and colors. The performance starts from the translation deadlock imposed by cognitive, cultural and linguistic horizons. During the performance, a dialogue is read and communication is mainly stablished through disturbances in the air of the room, where performers, audience and objects rest.
