Trauma Salon : friction & fiction

Thursday, May 26th 2016
Event Description: 

it happened to this day. the same goes for tomorrow, and the day after. it happens every day. it happened all at once. ask yourself : do you actually know what will happen after? will you do it anyway? is anybody watching? 
it could be worse. at least you haven't peed your pants. stolen someone's bike. sold your soul. bought facebook likes.
in such a way, we endlessly reflect.

rudi salpietra 
TRAPped (Medea, 2016) attempts to open the Pandora vase on the traumas of unwanted motherhood and the stigma it still carries in contemporary society.
In its fragmented anthology of abortion stories, it merges biographical performance, psychodrama, participatory ritual and performance art creating a collective exorcism in which shame and guilt are purged.
