OPHELIA by Ana Mazzei and Regina Parra
03 July 2018 at 19:00
9 performers, 1 work by Shakespeare, 1 act of denunciation.
On the occasion of the Brazil exhibition. The knife in the flesh the artists Ana Mazzei and Regina Parra present the Ofelia performance to the PAC.
The artists re-read Ophelia's character, selecting the passages of the Shakespearean drama that from their point of view reveal the submission and dependence of the young woman from the male figure. Ambiguous phrases, which evoke resistance and protest but also alienation and submission, and which appear in the text as traces of the inexorable destiny awaiting Ofelia. The artists paint his words on wooden panels supported by minimal and geometric iron structures, supported as signs of protest by women who, moving in the exhibition space, evoke a procession or a demonstration and create a body-to-body relationship with the visitor.

On the occasion of the Brazil exhibition. The knife in the flesh the artist Bern Royal presents for the first time ever the performance Camouflage, which will start from the CAP and then develop along some streets of the city.
The artist - dressed in a military camouflage uniform made by her - will push a wagon full of sheets used to cover the victims of violent deaths in Brazil, whose bodies are left on the street awaiting the arrival of the police.
An awareness but also an act of denunciation against the increasing forms of violence in our cities.
