The project “5 Minutes” intends to produce a performance out of at least 4 residences in 4 different countries in EU which deal with the issue of immigration: Italy, Lithuania, Germany and Greece. The performance wants to investigate the grassroot of the new migration and the impact it has had on the European countries. All the materials investigated during the residences will be integrated in the last performance and the actors will be chosen among the participants.
In Berlin residence we would like to involve up to 14 artists (or companies) and propose them some questions: what do you do in the 5 minutes before the bombing? Will you escape or stay? What do you take away? What do you think during this time?
The artists will be asked to meet, discuss and confront them in a creative residence that starts from Roof-knocking’s provocation. Monitored by the ImageCollective the artists will be free to use any different language both in terms of aesthetics and poetics.
