Alexandra Bachzetsis – 2020:Obscene

©Peggy June
Alexandra Bachzetsis’s new piece 2020: Obscene uses body, text and image to explore the ambiguity of “scene” and “obscene”. Together with four co-performers she is focusing on the relationship between the staging of the excessive body and its consumption by the coveting gaze and the overwhelming textuality. On the one hand, the work examines the problems of theatre as a manipulation machine with regard to seduction, attraction and games of sexual identity; on the other hand, it explores the performing body itself as a place of alienation and limitation of the human being. The performers are confronted with their own corporealities – with the contradictions between intuition and gesture, light and night, score and script, norm and form, conception and action. The piece, thus, not only questions the subversive and the normative in performance art, but also addresses itself to communication through excess as a radical interruption of formats, gestures, cultural patterns and archetypes.
