Intersections is a project that brings together four artists via video teleconferencein telepresence. These individuals have lived through major social movements in their respective cities, and have experienced important citizen movements in their city. Persian Spring (Tehran, 2009), the Tunisian Revolution (Tunis, 2011), the Iindignados (Barcelona, 2011) and the “Maple Spring” (Montreal 2012). The performance is a direct window to our world, questioning our era and our desire for revolution.
Have you ever had a feeling of rebellion?
Inspired by the performers’ personal experiences the piece is a poetic exploration of their dreams, hopes and disappointments, all connected with their desire for revolution. What can a shared theatrical event mean for different audiences separated by thousands of kilometers on four continents?
