Performance jam

Friday, October 4th 2013
Event Description: 

Performance Jam In the woods “If you go down in the woods today you're sure of a big surprise If you go down in the woods today you'd better go in disguise…”

The subject is about to look for the wild instinct who inhabit every single one of us and how it shows in moments when consciousness turn into different stages.

There is going to be a table by the side with a lot of props over it. At the beginning the space is empty with a brief light then, a woman with a branch attached to her back, get into the space and starts to walk in circles projecting a shadow. The other performers are going to get in to the space gradually making their outfits in real time. The performers are going to set up different kind of images with their bodies already transformed with the props they dress. Before it starts we are going to agree on a queue for the end of the jam. +If it is possible there is going to be a man making music alive. Building an ambient for the actions.
