ANONYMOUS CITY

2012 | 5 minutes | participative and operatic performance

This performance happened during a photographic exhibition whose curatorial theme was : Anonymous City. To match this theme, Porsperger asked the audience to wear white masks and to stand randomly in the gallery space. This configuration illustrates at the same time the Greek mythology of the errant and lonely Oedipus.

Music for a while
Shall all your cares beguile.
Wondering how your pains were eased
And disdaining to be pleas’d
Till Alecto free the dead
From their eternal bands,
Till the snakes drop from her head,
And the whip from out her hands.

(Poem from Oedipus Mythology)
