BACK AND FORTH

Performance: 30th of September 2011 at 14.00

ANTI Festival (Kuopio)

Youngsters, seniors, tons of ballons, naked man; a penis.

This was basically the scenario that laid before us when we walked into the College of Social and Health Care in Kuopio, where an unforgettable performance was about to take place.

It was quite obvious that Gatëan Rusquet is a professional perfromance artist — a kind of a person that would sacrifice almost anything in the name of art. And after a little less than one hour of binding, twisting, rubbing and squeezing, you could easily witness the physical tiredness of the artist.

It’s clearly a “knockout” to be an artist in action!
