Theatre Performance, 40min in the evening & ongoing installation in the daylight
by Ira Melkonyan and Jimmy Grima with Dominykas Savickas Irene Sorozabal Moreno Maria Rößler
“Ira Melkonyan & the rubberbodies collective show the effects of non-human behavior and question the assignment of authorship in the theater. This performative installation is an outstanding example of a political work of art. It does not "explain" nature, but invites us to follow the transformation of a leaky landscape and to experience it - with all its risks.” Here is the full Jury speech about the piece.
