Something Happens (Evgenia Chetvertkova)
This performance is a web of connections between a performer, an audience and environment in order to create a playground where small events may happen. It is created by a number of consistent small tasks with an open end for a performer, an audience and environment. This is an attempt to merge a happening and a theatrical piece, to create a fluid performative space that is open for events.
