Can a premiere take place in the intimacy of your home? How can we bring the poetic into instructions that are guiding our lives? Fionde (Slingshots) is a performative art work delivered to the spectator by post. It explores new types of connection between art and spectators.
“During the past year, our shapes have shifted, the structures are twisted. Our private life has been rewritten, loneliness has changed face and the collective has misplaced its bodies.
Celebrations and rituals have been silenced. Our images are filled up with deserts in which getting lost is much too easy, and we want to accept that; embrace the vertigo and set about finding new strategies to adapt.”
Fionde is a delivery that invites you to transform your own private environment and fulfill new rituals for processing emotions, memories and experiences, alone or with others. After buying your ticket to Fionde, you will receive a kit containing everything you need to experience the performance at home.
