HUMAN ERROR (2009)

Premiere: May 15th, 2009
Venue: TNT / Center for Culture Trešnjevka, Zagreb
Author: Marija Šćekić

INFO

Human Error is a solo performance, a portrait of a human being as the only living being on planet Earth who is constantly on the lookout for the true that is ultimately unreachable to him. The neurological sites in the body in charge of reasoning are the same as those in emotions and survival. If the philosopher Rene Descartes radically stated "I think therefore I am," and for several centuries afterwards the neurologist Antonio Damasio rebuked the title "Descartes' mistake" by claiming that reason was really just an emotion that evolved, Scekic presented "Human Error" with her own Body as Thought. Is mind or reason equally functional without sensations, emotions and feelings as distinctly physical phenomena? And this is human error, the idea of the eternal polemic of Mind and Heart, the relativity of human knowledge, the human tendency to make mistakes and learn from them, and the constant pursuit of truth and perfection.

The particularity of the show is in the choreography whose central motif is the long spin of the dancer in a place that evokes truth, love, eternity and symbolically depicts the dervish, the circle as the infatuation of religious dances. The choreography was created in close collaboration with radiologist Milan Radoš from the Croatian Institute for Brain Research in Zagreb (Neuron Clinic) and the company Byte Lab IT Embedded Intelligence from Zagreb, who created a system of wireless motion capture sensors sewn into a dancer's costume for the purposes of the dance.
