Steiner Tunnel Test

Our fantasies and thoughts are like a reel that runs over reality: distorting it, interrupting it. What occurs in the mind can be as real to the senses as what occurs in the physical world. The mind has the power to both enhance and dull what we perceive.

In order to escape the nihilism that comes with creating our own reality, we feel an aching need to blend with and enter into the other’s reality, another’s mind… to enter their flesh, their being and their embrace. We touch and yet our atoms never really touch, making connection just a magical illusion of the mind.

Director Biography - Luciana Lua, Svavar Jónatansson

Luciana Lua has been creating and expressing through dance and through the written word from as far back as she can remember. She studied dance at New York Theatre Ballet, Broadway Dance Center, Dance Manhattan, and ZoukNY. She has performed both nationally and internationally.
In 2014 a traumatic dance injury forced her to re-evaluate her focus as a performer and she pursued choreography at Concordia University’s Department of Contemporary Dance. It was there that she finally shed the straight jacket of “I’m not good enough, and I don’t know enough to create.” She discovered how to trust her body and her heart, and that her unique life experiences were the only authority she needed to channel her deepest pain and passion into movement, into art-making. Through this process she has experienced deep healing, transformation, and the ability to powerfully connect to those who watch.

Svavar Jónatansson has enjoyed creating videos, making radio shows, reading audiobooks and taking photographs, both in his native country Iceland and abroad for the last 20 years. He hopes for many more years of doing the same.
Creative endeavours are sometimes few and far between but ideas in various mediums are always on his radar. Some can be seen on his website which carries his own name
