[Season 2018 POWER]
16th February – 10th March 2018
Who wants to be a politician needs to venture into the world.
Opening the 2018 season with FOCUS POLITICS is foresight and provocation. The march elections speak for us. Politics permeate our social life in an intrusive way, contributing to spreading the alienation and detachment of the citizens. A question then arises: is democracy still a representation of the people’s power? In an everchanging society, is the power of democracy still effective? Is it still possible to talk about public and active agora?
Two famous international artists, that have already been guests of previous seasons at ZONA K, question these points. Roger Bernat presents PENDIENTE DE VOTO (HALTED VOTE). A show in which the participation of the public is required, in a political, humoristic reflection that faces the mechanisms of power in democracies and the totalitarian thinking in communities. A reflection on the word ‘citizenship’ and on participatory democracy, that can only make us think of the next political elections.
Yan Duyvendak, Nicolas Cilins & Nataly Sugnaux Hernandez (CH) with ACTIONS: a scenic device that seeks to create an ideal democratic meeting where refugees, political figures and volunteers can express themselves, with the goal of responding with effective and direct actions that can involve every single individual.
At last, the Italian section of ZONA K will host the revelation, artist Filippo M. Ceredi with BETWEEN ME AND P. , an intimate show made up of a documentary of a mysteriously missing brother. It is the action of one individual that creates a political by radically refusing to submit to the status quo of our society.
