Giuseppe Chico


Barbara Matijević

In englischer Sprache / leicht verständlich (Die deutsche Übersetzung wird in Schriftform kostenlos ausgegeben.)

A woman and a computer. The screen as a window to the world. What is reality and what is distortion? What is a depiction and what is believable? Falsification, interpretation, prediction? Experiences and hunches overlap. A fictitious scientific experimental set-up poses questions about the future and the danger of the loss of history.

The performer confronts her own three-dimensional presence with the two-dimensional world of countless YouTube videos. The future exists as a collection of not yet realised events and provides space for speculation. »Forecasting« is the last part of a trilogy and deals humorously and unpretentiously with the current media society.

Barbara Matijević, born in 1978 in Našice / Croatia, studied dance, literature and philosophy in Zagreb. Since 2003 she has worked with the company Kombinirane operacije as dancer, actress and choreographer. Together with Saša Božić she founded the company De facto in 2007. Giuseppe Chico, born in 1974 in Bari / Italy, studied drama and choreography, among others with Mark Tompkins and João Fiadeiro. Since 2008 he has developed lecture-performances together with Barbara Matijević.
