In the frame of Open Spaces!
A ritual in which the intimate and the public can coexist and support one another freely.
»Roger« explores consolation as a public gesture of care toward the suffering of the other. This solo piece is reinventing the allegory of an inconsolable subject in order to inspire affection in the spectator. The artists reclaim the suffering figure – marked by the loss of community, dignity and hope – away from reactionary politics and religion back to the sphere of solidarity.
