Weltschmerz explores what it means to be viewer and viewed and the power structures that are created in this relationship.
The performance creates a small environment and community, that is allowed to grow and expand with the possibility of interaction.
The performance exists in a open and fluid space where personal decisions and intentions, both from viewed and viewer’s perspective, allow the performance to change continuously and accordingly to the situations in which it exists.
Note: this piece is sold for a duration of 30 hours, and can be performed from the date of purchase for the next 18months in slots of min. 3 hours to max. 10 hours.
