a spect

Onomatopee 110

A glass mirror cup is placed on an empty surface; she carefully lifts it until she sees her faces’ reflection on the bottom of the cup. A moment of consideration, a moment of break. Suddenly she lifts the mirror cup to her lips and takes a sip of water from the glass. Drinking the image of herself, the object and the subject of this simple act becomes one, an infinite loop, like the one of the moebius bands’ surface begins.

 

Maria Lalou’s performative exhibition a spect departs from the presence of a peculiar reflective object, a seminar performance and it’s script. What is a stage without performers and how a work can be activated in the absence of ‘actors’? Who are the actors anyway? a spect is a quest into the theatre of consciousness where visitors become viewers of sights and where memory suggests future experience.

The presented book [theatro] is a rhythmical reading experience, a 5,5 meters long transcript of a seminar performance, reflecting it’s original pulse and duration. With introduction by Alena Alexandrova.

The staged event I AM A ’Φ’  on the 27th of June is a performance that attempts to trigger imagination of a particular existential state via constant tension and recurrence. The two characters of [theatro], A and B, are performed by a single person (language: English and Greek). Performed by Tania Theodorou and Maria Lalou.

[theatro]

[theatro] is a rhythmical reading experience, a 5,5 meters long transcript of a seminar performance, reflecting it’s original pulse and duration. [theatro] expands on the notion of ’view’ (‘thea’ in Greek, where the word ’theatre’ comes from). The word ‘view’ is also the root of the word ‘theory’ [coming from the junction of the words ’thea’(=view) and ‘oro’( =to perceive)]. Aiming towards theory as practice, [theatro] is a new work of Lalou in the form of a book written in two languages Greek and English.
