Alexa Wilson & Friends
As part of the Month of Performance Art Berlin this work explores cultural, physical and emotional ‘outsiderness’ and ‘insiderness’ in a cross-disciplinary performance art, dance and video piece spanning Europe, America, New Zealand (and Asia). It questions the elitism of power structures deeply embedded within our global and communal society in relation to the identity of bodies and the empowerment of self.
Influenced by Zizek’s book Violence, Wolfgang Suetlz’s Transart lecture on Cultural Translation, cross-cultural friendships and relationships, moving between borders. It is a reflection upon relationship to community, self, body, institutions, cultural identities using opposing mediums to explore questions of belonging, cultural outsiderness & transformation.
Sounds super serious, but is deeply satirical. Video might be beautiful also, shot across the world. It is a hybrid work of performance art, dance, film, theatre and music.
Some audience interaction. May contain live nudity. Tickets are doorsales.
Live Performers: Dave Hall, Matthew George Richard Ward, Alexa Wilson, (cameo by Teresa Peters) and music by Lucy Beeler.
Many performers on the screen from across the world eg Karin Hofko, Samin Son, Christie Orr, Tallulah Holly-Massey, Lucy Beeler, Matthew Ward, Lydia Bittner-Baird, Alexa Wilson, Brian Sweeny.
