Stemming from misunderstanding in the European Union between Greece and Germany, Confusion/Diffusion evolved into a depiction of the confusion under which the modern world operates. Combining images, electronic sounds, texts and live music, the performance piece, presented by Akademie der Künste, morphed into a new art-form all together. The performance, created by Greek composer and musician Floros Floridis and German film director Jeanine Meerapfel, consists of fragments of reality montaged into a 60 minute film, combined with live improvised music and selected texts performed on stage. The images on screen act as a visual framework, mixing with the live elements to create a mosaic of contrasts: enigmatic, humorous and provocative images and sounds of the everyday from both countries.
