What gives life its intensity? And what ultimately distinguishes humans from other forms of life? ›Dark Field Analysis‹, which draws its title from a branch of alternative medicine that uses dark field microscopy to analyse blood, unfolds like an existentialist fever dream. Immersed in diffuse light, two men engage in an increasingly gripping and uncompromising exchange about the essence of humanity. Set against a soundtrack inspired by PJ Harvey songs and grasping the theme of blood as an analogy for looking both inwards and outwards, both into and beyond the self, the performance resolutely places human life, stripped bare of all its self-protective and deceptive facades, under the microscope.
