9 Possible Portraits

9 Possible Portraits is made out of nine performances that are snippets of my own personal experience in nine different European cities. When I say “personal experiences” I mean my personal visions, which were framed by the constructed perspectives of reality I had contact with during the project Global City – Local City. By using the word “possible” in the title and by using it also as a practice, I intend to move way from the construction of a city based on totalization and homogenization. I intend to stay away from ideas of uniformity. I want to state that several artistic choices were made during the dramaturgical process that led me into one among many possible portraits of a city experience. Regarding the process, I should mention that this work has been driven by actions of extraction and removal – what I think of as artistic archeology – on which I take away materials from its contexts and work them, creating new situations where different meanings and senses are evoked.

Everyday in Spielart, nine short city portraits, which derive from my interpretation and consequent transformations of information, will be shared in an intimate ambience. A total of 126 performances will take place in a container during the Spielart Festival.
