Alex Augier: pr(—)

Saturday 24, 9 pm.
Teatro Jovellanos

This double session at Teatro Jovellanos will delight us with Alex Augier’s audiovisual performance pr (-), a site-specific version of his previous project p(O)st, in which the mapping of generative visuals in space is combined with new ways to perform live and an interface specifically programmed for the piece. The transversality of the performance is a beautiful illustration of how current artists emancipate themselves from traditional forms, going beyond the codes of known aesthetics.
