dears, here a very loose script of our common adventure into the deep.
an evening in 4 parts, starting in all scientific seriousness but off course we will completely loose ourselves in the end!
for every scene I wrote down keywords and loose associations which we need to visualize.
it would be great if the public could bring their own little light, so we have a lot of dancing lights when we are at our deepest :)
feel free to add stuff or to harpoon these ideas.
the tacky concept:
the deep sea is a metaphor of our inner depths.
the original plot:
we dive into the deep with our submarine, explore, discover and in the end loose ourselves.
pinky: captain, our charismatic and eccentric leader, miss. Cousteau
alvaro: pilot, handler of the robotic arms
lennart: co-pilot, steering the submarine
nadja: chief marine biologist, keeper of the logbook
malou: head diver, catching the fish
matthias: chief technician, controller of the equipment
there are 4 stages in our deep sea adventure, each going deeper.
stage 1: surface to minus 100:
(into the self)
the introduction of the crew, wearing red hats
taking ourselves, our equipment and all our mental luggage below the surface into the sub-conscience-marine
the submarine called “desire”
testing the equipment
descending slowly into the aquatic fantasy
mirrors and water reflections
a brain with a periscope
the escape of compressed air
the cam on the robotic arm
refocusing under water
everything looks bigger than it really is
bubbles going up
the gradual disappearance of color and light
stage 2: minus 100 to minus 1000:
(of a dark nature)
getting the data, observe, discover.
the witnessing of the great adventure of lust and survival in the deep.
hide or seek
pray or partner
sex or murder
the discovery of new species, using light to deceive in the darkness.
stage 3: below minus 1000:
the first symptoms of nitrogen narcosis:
the loss of orientation
below and above seem irrelevant
floating and flying
bubbles going down
gradual loss of consciousness
thoughts and insights become fluid
stage 4: minus unknown:
(the loss of self)
enjoying the last symptoms of nitrogen narcosis:
the introduction of the beat
bring your own light
ignore danger and depth
dancing in the dark
