it could be said that performers want to avoid to claim space in a way that a stage is. they are rather the first ones to use the word public, intervention or discovery and yet watching a performer discovering
going through something
in that space, one cant stop thinking that this is a massiv ego trip- wanting to be watched, finding something to show, claiming to be personally related to the site and true
in performance a lot of intents, no matter the trend, mostly have a beautiful, thought provoking konzept
but there is something energetically difficult if one person is singled out from the rest and keeps receiving attention by plan
there is people though who truly and sincerely have something to transmit and they too make their space, make to be seen
and it makes sense to be exposed to them in return, especially when they are creating a situation
because thats what they are good at,
strong energy, providing circumstance, guiding the moment
it falls and goes with the intensity of the person but if it touches, it touches hard. thats when you go home and you ve actually been out- on a journey, with someone you never met before with someone who you ll never forget.
viviana druga, a romanian artist living and working in berlin, she has recently been to paris for ‘ burn to live’, this piece.
a semi globe enclosing her area, consisting of wooden panels, bend to leave triangles of air that served as a marking point
the point , the furthest in for the audience
inside earth forms a slope with gras above wooden sticks hanging
around is the people, in its middle lies viviana, and crawls out and straightens up to arrive and to begin
the design of the semi globe encloses yet leaves areas of tangibility. this she accesses
coming closer to pass on something beyond the visual and metaphorical, in fact passing on something physical. surely durational, yet for the revelation to be human together and to be together in the now, its ideal, its transmission.
space as in assemblage of ones talents is a stage but if it works, quiet a few people are being enabled to enjoy the ride
