Christian Falsnaes: The Lead
Part of Conditions of Political Choreography
The Lead is a performance focusing on authority,power,persuacsion,and different modes of addressing the other. The work is performed by visitors to the exhibition. A director guides each individual participant, working with their body language, voice, and general demeanor. Each performance is followed by a collective discussion about the effects on both performer and audience, and every visitor has the opportunity to both perform the work and experience it as a spectator.
Facilitated by Maya Elran.
