Lines of the hand
genre: street theater-dance action with elastic
public: for all
Lines of the hand is a set of interacting with people who use large rubber bands to transform the urban space in an absurd, imaginary and imaginative place. A common character comes out of a site, measured the steps from here to there, beginning to build a resilient network, seek the help of the public, bounces when you try to change path, build human assembly lines and is seeking a world of absurdity just build.
Each day we leave home, go to the bus stop to work, then go back doing the reverse route: Lines of the hand plays with the lines we draw every day with our routine, transform the actions to a queue, sitting in a bank, walking in the street, tangles and turns back. The objective of this performance is to change, for a moment, our perspective, seek hidden irony in everyday life.
This procedure is inspired by the eponymous story by Julio Cortazar and plays with the idea of changing our daily routine, we walked the line every day and look around us from different points of view.
