"The Silent Retreat takes place in a circular formed dramatic space, lived in by the artist and two actors. Doused in a violet light and sparsely furnished, a psychodrama without a manuscript starts. Communication and social interactions become internalized, as there is no direct interpersonal contact, the performers find themselves in an environment that emphasizes their ‘bodily presence’. Their internalized thoughts and words are expressed through digital mediation, delayed and disrupted."
