«Are we bodies?»

with Libita Clayton (UK)

The practice of political and physical collapse is driving Libita Clayton forward. Sites are responded to physically: walls are wormholes with feelings, bodies map as what Clayton refers to as «historically-bumpy» landscapes, considering performance as a means of resistance to dominant and linear narratives that have to be reconsidered and socially authenticated.

This «Fun & Fury!» Performance Dienst-Tag / To-Do's Day is part of the program Are we bodies? curated by Vlada Maria Tcharyeva (CH)

Entrance fee: CHF 10.- (Cabaret Voltaire Members: free!)
