Extraterrestrial activity & Pretend we make you happy >> Friday, April 29th, 19h00, Hungarian Theater Cluj

EXTRATERRESTRIAL ACTIVITY

The Greys made contact with a world governmental body for the first time in 1933 in Germany. However, they were turned away by the German government because it had already committed itself to involvement with the Giza intelligence. A renegade group of human extraterrestrials that were headquartered under the Giza plateau in Egypt. They were predominantly Pleadians. They were on their own, doing their own thing. Ashtar, Commigal, and even Jehovah were a part of the group, for some time. They came down here and played God with us.

Alexandra Pirici graduated, in 2001, from “Floria Capsali” Choreography Highschool – Bucharest. In between 1997-2000 she was a scholarship student at the Vienna State Opera Ballet School.

PRETEND WE MAKE YOU HAPPY


What is physicality and what shapes can it take? What kind of interactivity appears when a kinesthetic transfer takes place between the performers and the public (if it does take place)?
Starting from the four "body genres" - comedy, drama, erotica and horror - genres which, at least in theory, create thrill, excitement or pleasure in the body which experiences or watches the situation - I have seeked ways in which to kinesthetically stimulate the spectator, adding cinematographic references.
"Pretend we make you happy" proposes a body which appears from speed, pulsation and colour.
My recommendation is that you seek in this performance only the present moment.

*Kinesthesia refers to the possibility of experiencing the motion that is passively induced on certain parts of the body.
