The Mind Project is about the phenomenon mind. The mind doesn’t have a shape, and we don’t know if it is inside us or if it is a part of the universe. Conscience is also a complicated phenomenon and we work with that as well. It is not about a relationship between two persons. It is more the relationship of a person with her/himself and with society in general. The idea of the performance came about as Marcia and Egill were talking in a cafe downtown on Leblon in Rio where she comes from. They came up with this idea of a play/performance/concert where The Mind would be “illustrated” or “clarified”. The mind can be anything. It can be a wind in the air. It can be words appearing in the room with a video projection, it can be shown in a conversation. It can be talked about in a scientific way. The performance blend things from Theater, visual arts and music and ideas that they have heard or read in books.
