“How’s the Beast?” @ Power Station of Art
Eyal Weiser’s “How’s the Beast?” features three new fictional artists – a Polish choreographer, a German-Israeli artist, and an Israeli performance artist. Working against the backdrop of Operation Protective Edge, the artists each create an artwork in response to an article published in the summer of 2014 in a German newspaper, which expressed concerns regarding Israel’s policy in Gaza. Combining dance, video, and performance art and making use of a range of artistic tools and a special performative syntax, the three artists examine the normalization of relations among their countries, as well as the evolution of collective narratives following the Second World War. The show is available on Friday at 7pm and Saturday at 2pm at the Power station of Art and tickets are ¥150.
WHEN: Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 2pm
WHERE: 3/F Theatre, Huayuangang Road 222 // 花园港路 200号
