Lea Moro (CH): Sketch of Togetherness
With Lea Moros new research project Sketch of Togetherness she aims to explore encounters as an artistic practice in itself. Lea Moro and a Guest X will share a day together. A camera will accompany the strangers on their journey. What does it mean to share moments with somebody you never met before? What does it take to get to know each other? How can we claim to know someone at all? The time they spend and the moments they share will provide the material for the following piece: Sketch of Togetherness. One can think of this as a story, a situation, an incident, a gathering. It might be full of confessions, heart-breaking stories, a real crime and daily life.
During Lea Moros residency at BUDA she will investigate in the research of building a dramaturgical structure of Sketch of Togetherness.
The research of „Sketch of Togetherness“ is supported by YAA! - Young Associated Artist Program by Pro Helvetia in cooperation with Tanzhaus Zürich, Stiftung Anne-Marie Schindler, Pro Helvetia and COINCIDENCIA South America.
