Goodbye Olimpia (Last Inventory)
In collaboration with Romuald Krężel and Emmilou Rößling, Performative Walk and Site-Specific Installation, 60 minutes, 2017
In Goodbye, Olimpia (Last Inventory), we invite the audience to say goodbye, to see the interiors of Stara Olimpia for one last time, even though they’ll probably still be the same tomorrow. Together we hold onto white lilies and each other’s hands. There is piano music, candles and dances of marble. We have sampled everything from the doormat of the first floor to the last, and we want to give a toast to it all —including the run down heating system and the staircase (still in good working condition). The performance is like an inventory of Olimpia. We have not changed anything about it and it is not always pretty, but the building is here for you and its spaces become the backdrops for your imagination.
Goodbye, Olimpia (Last Inventory) was created as part of the as part of the New Generation Residency at Scena Robozca, Poznań, Poland and premiered on October 10, 2017.
