I’m listening

Sometimes we just have to look at things from another perspective. And then a slight change can show us a whole new universe. When I (Nicole Pschetz) started to work with Miguel Bonneville in a shop window in Rijeka we could only see an empty space without a story. Standing in front of it our own image was being reflected by the sunlight. We were asking ourselves: what do we want to say? What would we like to do in this place, in this city? How to connect with the local people? Immersed by these questions I lifted my head and I saw a statue: a little man hiding from someone. Perhaps being persecuted?Perhaps looking after us? We wanted to create something that would combine the interests/needs of both of us. We were at St Barbara square. Miguel said he wanted to be a saint. I wanted to collect/hear other people’s stories. And then I’m listening was born. A durational performance installation where we would try to investigate what does it mean to be a saint today. People’s wishes would be heard and collected by St Vito in person on the 17th September from 1pm to 3pm.

About Poulpe Électrique

Poulpe Électrique is an association founded in 2015 with the mission to support the work of multidisciplinary artists, and contribute with the development and dissemination of the arts. In their shows and installations, the artists focus on speaking about contemporary themes. They aim at developing original and compelling work through a critical and poetic dialogue between physical expression and the digital arts. Their first production was a physical theatre piece about the relationship between women and the media: Feminine, but Elastic (2016). Their second stage project As I watched the clouds float by, the night came (2019), explores the themes of obsolescence and the Anthropocene. Parallel to their productions, Poulpe Électrique provides training to professional artists, amateurs, and anyone interested in developing artistic skills. By organising workshops on movement, theatre, and computing for the arts, they also engage in audience development.
