What part do the relationship between vision and touch play in times of social distancing? In the second exceptional edition of OPEN SPACES, Britta Wirthmüller and Margaret Dragu present an original performing arts theme on the stage: in “Try Leather”, the two performers tackle the issue of desiring to watch and to be watched. They explore the artistic values of striptease by looking back at a 45-year-old dance solo by Dragu. Sergiu Matis’ new piece premieres as an online film. In “Unruhe” (“Disquiet”), he focuses on allusions to ancient myths of doom and reflects current scenarios of alienation accompanied by a sense of fear for the future. — Will humans in the 21st century mutate into purported super-heroes or will they find an emancipated identity? Enrico Ticconi and Ginevra Panzetti will also screen “Ara Ara”, the second part of their diptych questioning various manifestations of power. Ellinor Ljungkvist will counter the tendency to taboo strong feelings in “ANGRY STORIES”, presented in an analogous way and from a feminist point of view.
