Beyond the Threshold of I
“Beyond the Threshold of I” is the second chapter of Margherita’s research on loss and disappearance. The performance expands and focusses on the exploration of the concept of identity as a fluid, unstable, moving being that exists in relation to others. It springs from the reflection around the definition of the self during the covid-19 pandemic: what parts of the “I” disappear when living in forced isolation? Trough words, dance and visual art, we explore the boundaries between personal and collective identity.
