Thursday, 7th of February: Lan Hungh with “O.T.”

Saturday, 9th of February: Maria Mitsopoulou with “The Moaning out of Synch”
All performances start at 9pm sharp (doors open at 8.30pm)
For its third occurrence, “Voyeurs” takes on a more intensive pace to explore its concept of out-of-gaze performances by inviting three artists to inhabit and exploit “the cube inside the cube” over the course of three evenings and three different performances.
“Voyeurs 3.0” is co-curated by EXPO and Vassiliki Vayenou. “Voyeurs 3.0” is organized with the support of berlinerpool (www.berlinerpool.de).
In “Voyeurs”, performers don’t act directly in front of the public. They are entrapped within the exhibiting apparatus, a closed white cube of 8m³ from which spectators are excluded. “Voyeurs” revolves around a voyeuristic contraption.
If the performance takes place inside a closed space, the spectators peek only what peers through the fabric of the cube. If they are not in it, they are forced outside of it. They can surround it, move around it, sit next to it, stand far from it, look at it, come closer and peep in it or do none of the above. The choice is theirs.
In “Voyeurs”, the viewer is put in the position to think about his place in the viewing process. He can interact (peep) with the structure separating him from the performer or he can decide not to and surrender his ability to see, possibly letting his other senses take over his experience of the performance.
With “Voyeurs”, artists are invited to take advantage of this peculiar and perverted scenography which either deals with subjects already present in their work or explores new facets of it.
