Larysa Bauge (the Hague, Netherlands)
Why do the wrinkles appear… (duration 20 min)
Watch: 13th May 2017 at 5pm UTC
DESCRIPTION: I believe in poetry of aging. It is nothing but accumulation of changes in the human being: physical, psychological, social. Our bodies become complex maps constantly encompassing traces of our choices and circumstances. I want to follow and highlight those traces. I see a web camera as a unique opportunity of bringing a viewer closer than it is acceptable in a normal live performance. I’d like to make a close-up body choreography, exploring the beauty of constantly changing curves, marks, posture possibilities. By this proclaim the beauty of a present moment and constant change. As emphasizing material for this performance I use transparent plastic, water and chalk.
