A performance ritual by Magdalena Petrova

VRATI is an unconventional way of relating to each other through clay. In this work, the participant is the conversation carrier and touch is playfully explored as a transmitter of thought and emotions. The performance starts at 14:07.

Open call for participation

We are looking for shapeshifters, non-talkers, and psychic communicators to participate in VRATI, a performance ritual that explores haptic conversations. The hands being the tools, using clay as a mediating platform for conversations unspoken by words but by energy and feeling. The installation builds upon symbols of Bulgarian Folklore and investigates the narratives of rites of passage.

About IRL

Our lives are dominated by the self-produced realities that we encounter on the internet and social media. This tension between fact and fiction touches upon the core of our leitmotiv IN REAL LIFE. The only way to escape the post-truth is to meet each other in real life. We facilitate these meetings in the form of readings, lectures, masterclasses, workshops, excursions and parties that tangibly express the ideas behind HOME | IN REAL LIFE | NETWORKS.
