Stuck! Stuck! Stuck!
By Iulia Benze
Meet Julia and David. A female vicenarian and a male sexagenarian. They are both repetitive and stuck in their own traumatic sexuality. Strongly believing that a performance could drive the audience completely insane, they both invite you at Stuckist Psychoanalytic Performance (SPP). It promotes self-discovery quest for authenticity, having subjects as a performer's neurosis or innocence, creating unseen psychological realities using means as shock, gimmick and Artaudian Cruelty. Stuckism starts at the stopping point. Placed under the umbrella of psychoanalysis through concepts as repetitive compulsion, estrangement and melancholia, our object is to performatively break an Estic taboo regarding age gap and to explore intergenerational aspects and sexuality in an interactional non representational discourse.
Stuckist Psychoanalytic Performance dwells in the traumatic repetition in which severe and painful surgery heart athleticism is involved.
