KULTUUR | Maria Metsalu (Tallinn)

31. Okt. 2023

KULTUUR contemplates the Sun. Performance not as thesis but as experience – something between a piano concert and a finger-painted surface. Within the framework of SPIELART on October 31 an November 2 at Einstein Kultur

The Sun radiates energy. The Sun might nurture life, or burn right through it. Metsalu gathers herself on the orbit of this duality. KULTUUR accommodates chaos and rejects it. Intensities vary between states of pleasure, indifference, suffering and hope for renewal. Metsalu displays herself as an object of spectacle, then denies the spectacle. We face KULTUUR as an audience, a collective body. This body will be fed, entertained and challenged.

The performance is divided into three baroque and splendorous movements – the parade at the hot dog cart, the concert of the Flower and the final consumption of the Sun, table d'hôte. KULTUUR is a celebration of life – of its fleeting, sensual nature. A desire for simplicity exists in tension with the allure of excess.

The pleasures are earthly, even if their energy comes from the body of a star.
