This coming July, the Institute for Provocation and the Dutch Theatre Institute join forces to present the work of Edit Kaldor and Boukje Schweigman, along with a series of workshops, talks and lectures. Edit and Boukje worked in residence with the Institute (then TIM/HUB) in 2008 and 2009. The program takes place in the Dutch Culture Center in Shanghai, in the framework of the World Expo.
The first part of the program focuses on the work of Edit Kaldor in general, and her theatre performance Point Blank in particular. Earlier this week, artist Frank Theys collaborated with 4 local photographers to collect spy photographs, of which a selection will be integrated in Point Blank, shown in the DCC theatre this weekend. Point Blank is a theatre performance in which 19-year old Nada explores her fascination with observing people. Finally, during a one day workshop, Edit shares the dramaturgical strategies behind Point Blank with a group of local artists, as a point of reference to elaborate on the reality of a situation in a theatrical performance.
