A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
In his new performance Spectatorship, Bruno Listopad continues his explorations of the possibilities and limits of the medium dance and performance art. Together with his dancers, he explores the position of the spectator in relation to the performer, in which he questions the inequality between the two. The performers in Spectatorship indulge their darker sensibilities. They affirm what is captured in their person, and use that to create the appearance of something “new” through a process of alienation. And in the end it is up to the audience to decide whether the inequality between spectator and performer is real.
