Liza Baliasnaja (LT): TRIEB
In a research for her new solo TRIEB, Liza Baliasnaja is investigating the physical qualities of effort/ surplus/ excess. Based on that, the work looks into the iconography of female grotesque and its relationship to the construction of the feminine in arts and culture. In the process of creation, Liza plays with somatic manifestations of the grotesque working with such qualities as tension, stretch and balance.
