Einat Tuchman (IL/BE): Other enter
This performance is about artistic participation in the life of others, in local politics, within unknown territories, in the neighborhood. It propose creative tools to practice social ties with in our on going encounters with differences.
In this performance I wish to communicate the journey I was taking during the last years into the bewilderedness of my neighborhood - Quartier Liberateurs, Molenbeek. I want to perform and portray the many surprising, enriching, discouraging, hopefull and hopeless encounters I had, trying to develop an artistic project by reassembling social differences.
The performance Other enter want to expose all the many difficulties that arises on the way to try and bring people together. I want to create on stage a sort of mind map or a maquette of the different encounters, concepts, events, paradoxes, realizations I experience during this local artistic research. On one hand I want to perform those situations as testimonies of a social investigation. On the other hand I want the audience to get involve and contemplate with me on some dilemmas. Can I create as an artist contemporary ceremonies that allow inclusivity? Can art be an activist tool that transforms social norms? And then what are those social norms that should be changed in a terrain of differences like Molenbeek?
