Italy Square, Santiago

Specific Site Performance presented in Plaza Italia, Santiago. 30 Performers use police fences to close people who were exiting Alfredo Jaar´s keynote held in the context of the X Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. I direct the performers with a whistle. They "draw" figures (circle, snail, hall) in space enclosing people. The spectators / participants playfully participate until the fences seem to become more hostile and force them to take positions and occupy certain spots in space. The performance is photographed from a drone that monitors the reaction of the surprised passersby.
