Performed almost entirely in the dark, ‘Miguel Bonneville #8’ issues concerning constant surveillance and control: disappearing seems to be achievable only through death. The need to stop, to take time for introspection, to get into close contact with nature, in the midst of all the demands and consequences of capitalism, seems to be an utopian dream. MB#8 reflected on how to disappear and on the skills of our imagination when it faces such impossibilities.
