Sticky Stage by DFS ( CGB, WM, Sara Pereira )
In the performance Sticky Stage Discoteca Flaming Star builds a temporary space in which to take up our fatigue and our dreams in order to approach a tender imagination. Going over night the performance is an invitation to sleep in and on a stage suggested as a crossing of stages.
The dystopic landscape of DFS’s films inhabited by the magician and the Dawn–Banners that claim the connection with the change of light, the temperature and the density during sunset und sunrise are mixed with melodies and songs from different sources: from Jules Dassin and Merlina Mercouri’s The Rehearsal, Lana del Rey, Roxy Music, Virgin Prunes, Frederico García Lorca, Jimmy Scott and Rihanna.
The long intervals of repetition of the different elements that constitute the performance are characteristic to group rehearsals. They propose a persistence, as the persistence of the bonding among the participants of a rehearsal and the persistence of the joy of making art. It insists on the fact that we will sing again the song, we will recite again the poem and the text and that we will sleep in the same space, dreaming together. Who will guard our dreams?
The performance is going over night and will last approximately 14 h. For those who want to spend the night (not obligatory): Bring sleeping bags, pillows, shelter, for the night…Mats and breakfast will be provided. Drinks and an evening meal can be bought in the space.
