The Volax Project is a body-landscape performance practice laboratory. The project investigates the relationship between body and environment both individually (physically, emotionally and spiritually) and collectively (socially, economically and culturally).
Taking into account the profound changes occurring in the individual and social life during a (post-) pandemic period, three performers, two visual artists and one filmmaker choose to work in the Cycladic Island as a practice of returning to a fundamental state of being-ness. The Tinian landscape is being explored as a state of mind, an understanding of the world, a community expression, an affect of the profound and the sacred, the essential and the necessary.
site specific performance and art practices, Cycladic land, body-landscape interrelationship, geogological site, performance-based methodologies of indigenous knowing.
