Introducing "Victor X": A Participatory/Immersive Experience (40 mins)
Prague Quadrennial 2023 - RARE experiences
Team Victor after their successful performance that premiered at ETKO winery in Limassol, in July 2021, will present the new version of the project - Victor X at the International Festival, Prague Quadrennial of Performance and Space 2023, from the 9th to the 11th of June.
The performance was conceived, visualised and directed by Maria Mitsi and Nasia Papavasiliou, with the support of Dr Doros Polydorou. Members of the creative team also include Belinda Papavasiliou as the performer/choreographer. The soundscapes of the performance were composed by Dimitris Savva.
"Victor X" presents a participatory/immersive experience where the audience engages into a world of interconnectedness and exploration.
Life thrives within the intermingling realms, the floodplains, and the interconnecting threads that bind diverse organs within a human body and interweave distinct bioregions within a living planet. It is in these meeting grounds, where bodies engage and converse, probing and transforming one another making life's boundless potential unfold and blossom.
Just as Frankenstein's diverse composition ignited experimentation and change, the project experiments with the significance of diversity in ecosystems and DNA and creates imaginaries that fuel the flourishing of life.
"Victor X" harnesses these principles, resonating with contemporary and future scientific exploration, particularly within the realm of reproduction. As science evolves, new frontiers open up, inviting us to explore the complexities of life's creation. By embracing diversity, examining intricate connections, and nurturing the interplay of genetic potentials, we embark on a path where science and nature converge, pushing the boundaries of what life can become.
By actively engaging with the exhibits, visitors will embark on a transformative journey, connecting with the profound mysteries of life.
