Ricardo Basbaum: Me–You Choreographies, Games and Exercises

Oct 31, 2009

Me–You Choreographies, Games and Exercises takes the form of a group dynamics proposal where two sets of shirts are distributed to participants: red shirts with the word “ME” and yellow shirts with the word “YOU.” The two groups perform a set of instructions corresponding to diagrams and/or proposals developed on the spot, in relation to the group of people involved and the architecture of the site. The proposal is referred as “group specific” or “person specific,” since results vary according to the group of participants who take part in the process. The workshop includes the screening of the video works Me–You (Shanghai Biennale) (11’39, 2008) and eu–você (ipatinga) (11’12, 2009).
