Touch the artist

Touch the artist – Performance by Eva-Maria Biribauer / 12th of January 2018, Oberwart

During this performance Eva-Maria invites the audience to approach and touch her, to cross their own and the artists borders, be part of a game or a dance. But Eva-Maria will not be extradited to the audience. It is her own decision, cross the others borders as well, intuitivly. It is an exercise on borders. What can I accept, when do I say no. What happens when you give up your borders. Questions on current and important issues.

On this very evening Eva-Maria changed her concept, due to her physcial condition. She respected her own borders – she didn´t want to be touched at all – and invited everybody to be part in “Touch the audience”.

1. exercise: People walk around, head high, look into each others eyes, be respectful and nice. Short break. Then run, bump into each other and shout at each other.

2. exercise: Two people stand together, opposite each other. Silent. Only arms and hands are moved. They mirror each other.

3. exerciese: We all rot together. Very close, very tight. Try to move together. Relax.

It was an interesting evening. People joined the exercises and were part of the performance.
