Rausch is the narration of a night, or many nights, a celebration, the observation of a queer Dionysian state. Its form changes depending on the circumstance as well as by the personas that alternate and define it. It is not necessarily presented as a literal intoxication but also as an emotional one. The subject experiences a communion, a spiritual encounter that co-exists with a rapture, the division of the soul, its departure from the Sensible World. The individual limits fade away, the subjects lose their outlines and their privacy; they cling to a dissimilarity that lacks a specific shape. The body turns into a place of observation, its pulse, its signs and its facial expressions recorded. As every state of influence and intoxication evolves, it registers on the body, leaving its mark behind.


*Rausch is dedicated in memory of Zak / Zakie Oh who was brutally assassinated on September of 2018

in the center of Athens in public view.
