Project info

During the Q21 Residency program I’d like to create a performance/multimedia piece involving people I meet during the stay and who agree to take part in my project. The script to the performance will be created based on the stories of involved people and myself; merged into one narrative. Every element of the story will remain true, yet the whole piece will become fictional. The stories will concern a theme which will clarify itself during the residency. I participated in a few residency programs and it had taught me that experience driven by new environment, people or culture is crucial for my artistic process. The initial idea for the project is important and creates a sense of security, but it’s very important for me to stay open to whatever happens and to try working outside of my comfort zone.

The act of storytelling will be performed in the gallery space. Simultaneously with the performance there will be a video projection screened onto the wall behind where the performance will take place. The video will visually correspond with the narration of the performers and the ,,stage‘‘ on which the performance will take place.
