Maria Lucia Cruz Correia and Benjamin Verdonck: THE SECRET EXPERIMENTAL OBSERVATORY FOR GLOBAL MATTERS
August 22nd at 9 pm, August 25th at 8.30 pm, August 26th at 9 pm at The Old Power Station – Elektro Ljubljana
August 23rd at 8.00 pm at Park Tabor
Maria Lucia Cruz Correia is an artist at the crossroads of visual arts, performance, interventions and environmental issues. She develops methods of participatory action, considering the potentials for paradigm change. Benjamin Verdonck will be Mladi levi’s guest for the third time. The foundation of his theatre projects, public space interventions and publications is the exploration of the modes of operation that can provide ways out of hyper-production and incessant mobility.
Cruz Correia and Verdonck will set up their headquarters in Ljubljana, lay down the blueprint of their mutual endeavour and then execute a daily artistic action for four days, presenting it to the festival audience each evening. They operate on the premise that change is possible, that even micro-change and mini-gestures matter, and that it is essential to think about what comes next, not only what is. Glimpses of the future without apocalyptic baggage.
