El meu nom és Hor (My Name is Hor) is artistically drawing from the poetry of the image which is articulated by means of circus techniques and puppetry.  The scenographic and spatial treatment is achieved by the continuous use of lighting controlled on stage by the performers.  Puppets are the co-stars of the performance. They are a metaphor for an identity that has been lost or not yet formed, while also acting as the alter-egos of the protagonists.

Wanja and Adrià, using obsolete objects, unfinished puppets, high-risk acrobatics, penetrating humour, and a disconcerting interplay of light and shadow done with an electrical device they call the “Luminòfon”, tell us, with beautiful and disturbing images that tap straight into the viewer’s subconscious, the story of what happened to them in a cave while they were working on the creation of My Name is Hor.

This is the second piece by the PSIRC company, the first being Acrometria which has been shown around the world in recent years.  The title My Name is Hor is taken from a short story by the German writer Michael Ende, a writer who, like Georges Didi-Huberman, Guy de Bord, Byung-chul Han, and the author(s) making up The Invisible Committee, has been a source of inspiration for the performers.
