ΜΕΤΑ [AFTER]

A Performance about
the Catastrophe of the World
A Piece for Ten Performers,
Musicians & Citizens
Prague Quadrennial 17
OFFICIAL HELLENIC PARTICIPATION

META is a hybrid site-specific performance that emerged from the meetings of more than 50 citizens, activists & artists to discuss and form an utopian society and consequently challenge the role of art. This performance inaugurated the cultural space “Vyrsodepseio” and fueled long-lasting collaborations and a network of activists and artists. The performance deals with notions of the “end”, people & society in a moment of disaster/crisis and the end of the Big Narratives. Something breaks down, something gets irretrievably lost: “Let’s celebrate!”
In META, small talk runs in parallel with philosophical & political texts by St. John, Plato, Rosa Luxembourg, Roger Dadoun, Fernando Pessoa, Ernesto Sabatto, Pierre Paolo Pasolini, Thierry Paquot, Witold Gombrowicz, Karl Marx and more.
