Krõõt Juurak

The Place of the Grave, Krõõt Juurak

 

27 September 2016, 7 p.m.

 

The Centre d’Art contemporain Genève is proud to present a new event in the framework of Avalanche, its programme dedicated to performance and contemporary dance. For this new instalment artist Krõõt Juurak will present a new lecture called “The Place of the Grave”. This lecture explores notions of disappearance, expectancy, and the duty of the artist to believe in his own work. Somewhere between the deeply engaging and the uncomfortably real, Krõõt’s delivery is that of the stand-offish stand-up tragi-comic.

Krõõt Juurak, born in Tallinn, Estonia in 1981, is a choreographer and performer whose work (performances, presentations, texts, workshops, mood shifts) challenges fixed definitions of choreography and performance.

A girl was playing in the house and suddenly the Grave came to the girl and said: “Little girl, little girl, you can play here but you have to close the doors and windows.” The girl said yes and continued to play. Then the Grave came a second time and said: “Little girl, little girl, you can play here but you have to remember to close the doors and windows.” The girl said yes again and continued to play. For the third time the Grave came to the girl and said: “Little girl, little girl, you can play here but you have to remember to close the doors and windows. The girl said yes, and continued to play.”
