Museum of Hygiene
5 April  2012 , The Red House
7.00 p.m. , Red hall
Performance: Iva Sveshtarova (Bulgaria) and Willy Prager (Bulgaria); Dramaturgical consultants: Angelina Georgieva (Bulgaria) and Mira Marianova (Bulgaria); Wrestling consultant: Asen Madzharov (Bulgaria); Photography: Denitsa Ruseva (Bulgaria)
Simulating the role of curators in a fictitious museum, Iva Sveshtarova and Willy Prager choose to turn into exhibits works from the field of performance and visual arts, as well as wrestling techniques, by reformulating them. Thus the performers exercise a position of their own towards the notion of “hygiene” inevitably associated with the idea of control, discipline and order. However, “Museum of Hygiene” opts to reverse the optics and look at the concept of “hygiene” by sabotaging it. A tense interaction between two bodies whose acts go beyond the regulation of “sanitation”: they produce and oppose their forces… until utter exhaustion. The performance is realized in partnership with the National Theatre “Ivan Vazov” and supported by Goethe-Institut Bulgarien and the Ministry of Culture.
Duration: 40 min.
