Next week we open Modern Lives by DAFNA MAIMON!
This week the total performance has been set in place and started to live and roll.
The last actor has joined the set, escaping and flying around.
Modern Lives draws its starting point from the life of a real person; the artist’s mother Ulrica Maimon, who in the early 2000s, created an alter ego for herself, the 1860s goldsmith’s widow Mrs. Gyllendaal Af Berntas.
At Lilith Performance Studio a full-size domestic arena has been built up for the alter ego Mrs. Gyllendaal. The widow inhabits the house together, with her doppelgängers, and her staff. This performative space becomes a construction site for the self, where the self can be seen as a multi-layered, fluxuating entity; an emotional landscape in motion. We step into the afterlife of trauma, where repetitive distorted fantasies form a surreal and melancholic world where its inhabitants echo themselves as prisoners of their own condition.
Warmly Welcome! Next week March 10 -12 between 7 pm -10 pm.
You can come when you please and stay as long as you want.
