Blue Red Rocker
The performance derives from the work of Ellsworth Kelly "Blue Red Rocker". According to the artist his sculptures start from the painting and continue in the space. Our performance is the continuation of the sculpture in movement. This is the physical research on balance and support between performers, between performers and space and performers and viewers. The important aspect of the narrative is transformation of energy and speed from rush to calmness.

The artist explained his own work in 1996 by stating the following: “I think what we all want from art is a sense of fixity, a sense of opposing the chaos of daily living. This is an illusion, of course. Canvas rots. Paint changes color. But you keep trying to freeze the world as if you could make it last forever. In a sense, what I’ve tried to capture is the reality of flux, to keep art an open, incomplete situation, to get at the rapture of seeing.”
