Assembling the Object of Discomfort

Performance by Christina Ciupke, Igor Dobričić, Boris Hauf
In the frame of Open Spaces#3-2016

The performance that we would like to develop will enact a process of assembling and transforming the materiality of space, sound and movement into an object, making the performance itself into a site of this construction. As the object starts emerging from a cumulation of actions, the quality of mystery will be enhanced, as what is being put together, will maintain its resistance to interpretation. If discomfort appears in situations in which we need to experience things that we do not understand, this work could be a shared exercise in how to make sense of such a discomfort.
