IN YOUR COAT
In collaboration with Mariko Hori
This performance is a study about ‘trust / expectations’ and portrays our vision of freedom inside and outside of our own countries. It is based on a traditional Japanese act ‘Ninin - Baori’ (two persons in one coat) which is a type of comedic skit where two people wear one large coat and pretend to be one person, with one person being the ‘face’ while the other acts as the ‘arms’. Humor arises from the arms being out of coordination with the face. Alternately, uncoordinated faces with their arms pronounce the content of texts on freedom, discrimination and restrictions, in a language that they don't speak (Serbian / Japanese)...
