boikott

We have this fabulous intelligence, but, we also in some ways, we are the most fragile living beings on this planet. So fragile that we – because of the capacities – we risk failing in ways that will destroy every possibilities of any human future. – Jan Helge Solbakk, Bioethicists from Oslo 

 

The documentary performance deals with the meaning of the body – the flesh – in today’s society. Three performers navigate through live music, live video and pan-European interviews with protagonists from the porn industry, the church, the food industry, and many more. Fascination meets disgust, theory meets practice, body meets consciousness: Individuals on data carriers, concepts of the unthinkable, perception as the basis of the mind, the vulnerability of the human body, the non-locatability of human thought in a binary logic, the question of the possibility of disembodied existence, the will of the spirit and the desire of the flesh. With the co-presence of the materials, the live performance and the audience, a space is created which enables the simultaneity of the seemingly incommensurable, allows perspectives to collide and searches for ruptures as well as interfaces between concepts. 

The production alliance boikott was founded in 2017 by Robin Plenio and Sophie Krause and has been a steadily growing structure ever since. In their work they combine documentary research with performative hybrids from the performing arts, video art and electroacoustic music.  

 

N O T E :
Part of the performance includes loud noises and flickering lights.

Content Note

The performance addresses topics of sexual abuse and cannibalism and works on the video level with footage of raw flesh.
