Our journey with Freedom Paranoia started in a one week residency in south of France. There was no clear script, but a vague skeleton of a story. We documented the process and experimented with characters. In this video we merged between the true anxieties and worries of the actors, and those of the characters. The result - a confusing 3.5 minutes that leave us with more questions than answers, and one anxiety attack.
Freedom Paranoia is a new-media and live performance piece comprised of three actors and three musicians, based on the arts of circus, music, dance and physical theater.
The piece is set in an absurd universe, lacking time or roots, in which the characters invite the audience to a journey into their lives that consist on conflicts and moments of happiness, where anxiety replaces freedom, violence becomes an act of love, joy merged with agony, and convenience becomes confrontation.
Freedom Paranoia is a collaboration between contemporary French circus company Kitsch Kong and local musicians Orel Tamuz, Mika Sade and Nir Yatzkan.
