Amorgos Up Festival - Forest of O - Maya Bösch, Sturmfrei Company
On the occasion of the Amorgos Up festival, Flux Laboratory, in partnership with the Embassy of Switzerland in Greece is happy to present the performance FOREST OF O of the Swiss artist Maya Bösch (Sturmfrei Company).
FOREST OF O brings together a choir of 100 people that will reflect the diversity and complexity of the island, its identity, history and utopia. A choir made of local people, artists and amateurs, but also associations, groups, communities, different generations, speaking different languages, from various backgrounds and diverse cultures.
FOREST OF O is a performance, a commemoration, a social sculpture, a collective cry, a choreography in space, a happening and a dance. The chorus of FOREST OF O will work on the principle of hope and utopia.
Maya Bösch is not interested by memory seen as a black box that records the various random information of the system, but memory as a physical event, as movement, as action and sound.
