The interdisciplinary project “Ghosts Are My Reality” combines movement, video and sound to explore the phenomenon of dreaming.

The work deals with Derrida's concept of Hauntology, a word in which the priority of being and presence is replaced by the figure of the ghost. Drawing a parallel between dreams and ghosts, which as ghosts find themselves in a state of “not yet and not anymore”, Maria Focaraccio, Katharina Scheidtmann and Theresa Maria Forthaus aim to create an imaginary landscape, using the body as a vehicle to grasp the nature of dreams.

Conceptual thinking and causal-logical remembering get pushed in the background, emotional experiences come into focus and different levels and realities overlap, with tones at times ironic, at times absurde, at times intimate.
