We are not from outer space is a piece about us being humans.
After meetings and discussions, in the period after the Egyptian January 2011 revolution , Shafik, Vilhena agreed that they are not interested to express what makes them to be European and Egyptian. Politics and Economics are just tools we use to manage who we are. They contaminated us with a lot of information that we got used to calling ‘ours’, but which does not belong to us and therefore does not represent us. What is common to us is the lost feelings and, disbelieve in the power systems.
Our point with this project is to make a performance that reminds the audience what is sensitive in us, us being humans.
We want to cross border, of language, geography and culture. We want to test the permeable frontier between the universe of things and deed and the universe of the imagination.
