Departures and Arrivals



Robin Jonsson

In the three productions he created since his graduation from P.A.R.T.S, Robin Jonsson stages artificial bodies from computer games, manga comics, animation films and puppetry. These avatars are characterized by a very specific body language, dictated by the specificity of the medium itself. Just like puppets imply a puppeteer, and game heroes are characterized by some kind of invulnerability, each of these media rephrase the vocabulary in which we imagine ourselves. When these virtual movements are translated by physical bodies on stage, they generate an intriguing confrontation between artificiality and authenticity, virtuality and materiality, imagination and factuality.
