Rita Vilhena | Yael Karavan
24 and 25 November 7pm
Directed to all audience
MA-MA is a performance-installation that reflects on the place where we live, on our fragility and the imminent danger to which life on earth is subjected.
Planet Earth as a woman’s fertile body, is a metaphor that unites a lot of traditions. In this site-specific version for In-Shadow, there will be 2 of the main elements of the original 60 min live performance, as we create a live intervention that leaves a trace in the space for the spectators to travel through.
The audience is invited to take their own journey through the installation and experience the effects of their/our actions.
