Berlin Premiere by Alexandre Achour
Recounting stories from a time long past, of radical and subversive participatory performances from the 20th century, three performers venture into the unknown realms beyond the 4th wall and summon the spirits of the pioneers that turned spectators into players, seeking change for both the art world and the whole of society. Overcome by images and emotions, the ensemble questions the efficacy of participation in art today.
