Lilith Performance Studio is looking for participants for a new performance by the Finnish artist Henna – Riikka Halonen.
The performance is based on Alain Robbe Grillet’s film, L’Eden et Apres (After Eden ) from 1970, where the scenes are structured as amise en abyme, a world within worlds, and stories within stories, in which it is difficult to determine what is real and what is illusion.
Eden, The Pow(d)er of Fear, is a modernist labyrinth like construct – in which a group of students apparently live, routinely indulging in transgressive behaviors of all sorts; games,inventing plays, abstract rituals and activities to spend time and give meaning to their lives.
There is an arrival of a stranger who introduces several new games to them and offers a “fear powder” from his pocket, which triggers a hallucinogenic, baffling chain of events that take on the most bizarre forms.
Lilith Performance Studio is looking for people who like to act and have some sort of stage/acting experience. The acting willhave a clear direction but also a degree of improvisation. The feeling for the audience will be as walking into a living film. You do not need to speak Swedish.
The performance will last for three hours andrequires focus and commitment. We are looking for people that are not afraid to try new things and that dare to go into a game of improvisation. The performance will consist of several scenes that are alternated and copied. Elements of ritual, ” violence ” and fear will be included.
Some parts of the performance will also be a film, which will be shot at Lilith in the performance set.
