contemporary performance almanac 2015
















With the performance ZOO Eduardo Avendano is thematizing  the violability, the social exclusion and the precarious living conditions of many townspeople living on the streets  of Buenos Aires in a kind of social periphery.  For the project in Munich he does a cultural transfer considering the centers (Europe) way of looking at the periphery (South America). The corporeal reflection of limits is the central theme of his performances. Limits touched by bodies under extreme conditions, limits touched by the spectators watching the performance. In sum the tolerance limit of a situation, casting a spell despite all the direness or precisely why.
