VISUAL ARTS

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.

VISUAL ARTS

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 | Leonardo Moreira & Cia. HiatoThe Odyssey

Drawing inspiration from the Homeric epics, the outstanding Brazilian collective returns to the OCC. Like contemporary rhapsodists of old, seven actors recount personal and collective odysseys, oscillating between realism and fantasy. The living/live experience of this marginal narrative challenges the fact-fiction dichotomy and the audience-actor polarity. Because, after all is said and done, we may all be equally mythical and monstrous.
