ABOVE THE SKIN

 

10 - 17 AUGUST (including arrival and departure)

 


​​

 

A one week workshop at Odin Teatret led by Giuseppe L. Bonifati of DOO (Divano Occidentale Orientale) to make urban actions and prepare a group performance with 20 participants (artists and not) in Holstebro.



Despite the many humanitarian battles of nowadays, we have good reason to say that we do not care about each other. No matter the faces, the scars, the form of the eyes, we don’t want to show ourselves as we really are. We prefer a secure connection, overprotected, the one that we adopt every day, a bit like this: “https://”
(Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol) we may name it wishing for anonymity?
What would be the reaction of passengers and citizens by meeting outdoors every day in their
neighborhood, a person living in a second skin?
Will they want to join him?
Perhaps.
We need volunteers, person-objects of Anonymity.
It’s like a multicoloured dump, but the Artist this time is not in it.
What happens if He’s the only one not having fun?

 

 

 

More and more often we see urban performances or artistic acts that alter the daily life of everyday citizens; in which the Artist meets the mass and at the same time is in conflict with it. In these actions, the Artist places himself on the opposite side as an orchestral conductor, necessary, but invisible. Instead in this performance, the Artist will reveal himself just in the exact time, as the sound of a gong, giving the start to a multicoloured marathon. In an “exact time” that the ancient Greeks call “Kairos”.
Above the Skin is an artistic and urban action that move from this need:
to meet up, naked and covered (to say it with an oxymoron) by a second skin.
