With “Three Days to Liberation” the collaboration between Constanza Macras, her ensemble and Maryam Palizban, who started with “Electrodomestics” years ago, continues. The events after the Jina Revolution brought them together again.
Electrodomestics is a lively and inspiring mix of cooking show, concert, performance, expert discussion and dance in which the group of performers explores the concepts of “cultural background” and “identity”. Starting from the performers' circles of family and friends, the group uses their social environment to examine phenomena such as collectivity and nationality. The audience cooks, eats and discusses with them and in this way comes up against their own limits and stigmas, but also unexpected openness. The boundaries between the performers and the audience blur and together they open up a space for exchange, togetherness and spontaneous, creative outbursts.
