Constanza Macras | DorkyPark: The Pose
How do the narratives of self-presentation change through the abundance of careless images? Constanza Macras and her Company DorkyPark take up a diachronic perspective from the past and present to look at self-representation, spanning from classical portrait painting to historical photo documents to digital selfies taken with mobile phones.
THE POSE deals with memory in relationship to the physical architectural space and the collective memories it carries. It is a 4-hour performance course where the exercise and mechanisms of memory and its faultiness are part of the audience´s experience.
Viewers move through Werner Düttmann’s building, from station to station, through various atmospheres and levels of memory. In this peripatetic walk through the parallel performances, much like “the art of memory” from the pre-Socratic period, in which walking and thinking are reconciled, the spectators experience the collective memories of the historical architecture of the Akademie der Künste at Hanseatenweg in the intimate spaces and through monumental stage pictures.
