what is the color of your car

the longest day – 12 hours of permanent performance, Zeughaushof, Zurich / 21st of june 2014
Mo Diener, RR Marki, Eva Merkling-Mihok, Milena Petrovic / Esther – Maria Haeusler (dramaturgy)

The performance is a conversation on stage engaging language, text, media, music, corporal gestures, and a car. Desire and rejection is the dynamic that moves the conversation forward, exposing processes of discrimination. The vehicle parked at center stage is alternately container, membrane, screen, mental medium and dazzling reflection of its users. The performance merges aesthetic strategies from propaganda, the musical and activism into a hybrid form. At the heart of the performance is an extract of a conversation from the film “Privileges” by Yvonne Rainer. The film was released in 1990, just in time for the end of the Cold War. It contains a dialogue which links racism to the economic interests of the West and uses the analysis of colonialism to refute the fear of the other. The dark and dirty, and the imagination that it sprouts, are exposed as the means to preserve ones privileges. Yvonne Rainer revisited.
