-18h MÉLANIE MARTINEZ LLENSE: HYBRISTIKA - Performance
HYBRISTIKA replayed an ancient ritual of Greek antiquity consisting in exchanging clothes between boys and girls; the exchange of clothes symbolizing the entry into the Chaos era. This ritual of the festival works on the analogy between vital impetus and insurrectional momentum, in order to see to what gesture of creation this hybris, this excess of being, gives rise. To free the body from the norm, to emancipate it from an imposed reality in order to reinvent it, literally to exalt it, such is the Dionysian principle and the driving force of the project.
