Kairos by Lysippos, Instagraph

Imagometia, by Rafau Sieraczek, is an event commissioned specially for this year's festival. Drawing on John Berger's seminal work Ways of seeing, it is a daring prelude towards the dream about the metamorphosis of the image. It is a moment - a circumstance, yet at the same time a proposition for an experimental domain of arts and humanities which, integrating new technologies, radically investigates different modes and possibilities of seeing.

The performance will aim to create conditions appropriate for an inclusive reflection on John Berger's famous BBC TV series but not exclusively. Some of the pictures will also echo Jacque Ranciere's vision about the future of the image or Guy Debord's concept of the spectacle. Through dance, discussion and interaction with the audience, we will endeavour to convert the eventless image that dominates today's society and reflect on how to include it in the emerging vocabulary of transformation.

It is an invitation to re-sense the visible. An event which incidentally also investigates the balance between spontaneity and plan. Imagometia is every thing and every moment that makes you look at things differently,

                                                
                                         yes, differently.



Rafau Sieraczek is a classically trained pianist, currently working in theatre, who has also studied photography and philosophy. He is a visiting lecturer, actively collaborating with London based artists and collectives. He is currently also involved in the development of art projects within the HE and Cultural sectors in France and Italy, as well as being the Director of an innovative theatre concept Imagine a Spectacle
