“Tumult” — work in progress
13.11. / 7:30 pm / Mala scena
Three tightwire artists limited to balance on one tightwire. The footsteps of the one will become the others.
Tumult is a collective of four tightwire artists. The collective works on relearning and redefining diverse ways of collaborating on the tightwire. The challenge is to work with four people on a single wire simultaneously. The fragile and limited space becomes a moving ground unpredictable in its reactions: How to work together when each movement might take away the other’s balance? How to help each other? When does help become a burden to someone else? How to cooperate? What can we do, if we decide to trust? The emergency exit will be the fall.
The fragile space on the tightwire and a minimalistic scenography highlights the interactions of the artists. Paint will be used to uncover the traces of our relationships and experiences, leaving behind a memento of the past. A first try-out, a blank canvas to be explored.
