LAPSody 2019 


7th International Live Art and Performance Festival
21-23 February 2019, Helsinki (FI)

You come into the world. You are given a name. You grow into that name. You learn how to write. You learn all the letters. You write them down. What color do they resonate with? Are you anywhere in those lines?

Please, sign here.

You learn to write your name down faster, more efficiently. You produce, you reproduce. White paper, black letters, blue pen. What color are you?

Please sign on the dotted line.  _ _ _ _ _ _ _

You choose. You form the order of the letters now. A number, a sound, a symbol, an action. A pause, a pose, an attitude. A pin code, a thumbmark. A letter; X – a performative utterance. Are we in agreement?
