A lecture-performance on war, peace and hope from a cycle titled ”Icons of the Rhetoric”. Navaridas & Deutinger are experts in choreography of word and body language. They present President Barack Obama’s Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech in Oslo. Alex Deutinger recites the speech in its authentic version while Marta Navaridas acts as a teleprompter, manipulating and directing his movements. In a simple, amusing and uncompromising way, the artists expose not only the social engineering used in politics but also the relationship between a gesture and word, nuances of perception and limits of one’s endurance. The unconventional duo from Graz is going to perform in Poland for the first time.

Marta studied Translation at Pompeu Fabra University Barcelona, Choreography at ArtEZ University Arnhem and Mime at HKA Amsterdam.
