Awakening is a modern morality play by artist in residence Belén L. Yáñez in which roles are assigned, but the story has yet to be written.
The poetically intense and beautiful atmosphere of Awakening creates a one-to-one relationship with the audience – a unique experience questioning the boundaries between performers, participants and space.
A participatory performance directed by us but created by you: don a mask and dive into a surreal, modern morality play whose story has yet to be told. Immerse yourself into the world of Awakening. Guided by the dynamic Plutonyka, each participant will don a special hand-made mask that reveals the guises we all wear in society to hide from one another – and sometimes ourselves. Awakening invites participants to play out different social scenarios and reflect on their culturally-learned behaviours.
Each intimate performance strives to target all of your senses, providing participants with the ingredients to create their own sweet-and-sour composition.
