BODY / LANGUAGE. Wrestling with gestures and words is a two-day project focussing on performance as artistic medium. The title reflects the essential components of performative works, and refers to the main means of communication that also constitute our identity: body, language, and body language. But what happens if they are wilfully manipulated or distorted, or if there is a lack of knowledge of codes and rituals of a language or of a certain cultural sphere so that communication becomes hindered or even completely impossible?
Participating artists: Lucie Mercadal (*1987 in Besançon, France), kate hers RHEE (*n.s. in Seoul, Korea, raised in the USA) and Rizki Resa Utama (*1982 in Bandung, Indonesia).
