Science Fiction: A Journey into the Unknown

FFF5 | Hikaru FujiiThe Primary Fact

An Ancient Greek mass grave with 80 dead prisoners was discovered two years ago in Paleo Faliro. The Japanese visual artist Hikaru Fujii returns to the FFF and after extensive research, in collaboration with the choreographer Patricia Apergi and the people in charge of the excavation, he turns his eye to this astounding find, spotlighting the "dark" pre-Golden Age Athens of the 7th century BCE. The audiovisual installation that he mounts in an emblematic building of the academic community, the former Chemistry building, which is now the Law School library, includes interviews with those in charge of the excavation – from archaeologists to dentists – and the reenactment of the execution and the burial by a chorus of young Athenians.

FFF5 | Chto Delat & Anton KatsPark Fables

Using as raw materials traces of history and memory, fragments of identities and experiences, the world-renowned Russian collective Chto Delat and the visual artist and musician Anton Kats cultivate on the fertile field ground of Pedion tou Areos. Through a theatrical performance, a radio station, brief visual interventions and parallel actions, they create a fictional field between the real and the imaginary in one of the most polysemous public spaces in Athens.

FFF5 | Ho Tzu NyenOne or Several Tigers

In the magic of a dreamlike multimedia installation, with features borrowed from Indonesian shadow puppetry, the cinema, and 3D animation, a tiger sings the story of Singapore, conversing with a representative of the colonialism that has been such a definitive influence on the city. What is, finally, the narrative that we are familiar with and how has it been constructed? What are our perceptions based on?

THEATRE

FFF5 | Lecture Performances | 2nd DayAli Cherri, Rayyane Tabet, Akram Zaatari, Marcella Lista

Misleading legends haunt recent history – whether we talk about Lebanon or Singapore. Armed with witty humour, the five FFF lecture performances have a lot to say about fabricated narratives: from archaeological excavations and spy stories in Sidon and Tell Halaf, the genealogy of swamps and the geopolitical construct “Southeast Asia”, to the image of the sweaty colonial in Hollywood movies. At the end, there will be an open discussion with the artists.
