Katherina Andreou (GR/FR): BSTRD
BSTRD is a solo performance, based on the notions of impurity and hybridisation: what if the idea of purity is an illusion and everything was made of a much more complex material, so that the question would not be focused on the origin (or originality), but on the final function or/and impact to the rest? Inspired mostly by House culture's practice of amalgamation, I am interested on developing a physicality that can carefully serve the concept of pure impurity, plus on the creation of a vinyl as scenography and tool of the political and poetic discourse of a bastardised figure, free of all enclosure and codification, but respectful to its reality.
