קרקס הבריחה - Runaway Circus
Opening 1.7.2021 הפתיחה
הנסן - עיריית ירושלים - רן וולף - הרשות לפיתוח ירושלים - משרד ירושלים ומורשת

Thursday, 1.7

The audience is welcome to watch the critical moments during which the performance artists are usually preparing in their dressing room. These are intimate moments of quiet and concentration, the moments when they morph into their characters. These are the moments when the performers leave behind their regular identities, shed their everyday lives and become circus artists who have unusual appearances or special skills.

The artists are inviting the audience to enter the back door of the circus, which is usually blocked to them. Viewers are invited to experience, alongside the artists, the intimate and sisyphic transformation they undergo over long and exhausting hours, as they prepare for a show that usually only lasts a few minutes.

Sally Krysztal and Bar Flesch 

19:30

Opening gala

Design Week’s opening night will be marked via several events and performances. As we unveil all the exhibitions and installations on the festive opening night, we also expect to encounter various musical, performative and circus-related interventions throughout Hansen House. Among them are:Clown X, a group of multidisciplinary artists, which will operate as Design Week’s official circus group. They will hold a big central performance on the opening night along with musicians and other guests, and will also carry out other interventions. Artist Sally Krysztal will hold an ongoing tattoo performance alonside artist Bar Pelesh. Artist Liron Ben Zikri will read your cards at the Kishufuni exhibition, and participants in the Matchmaker Project will invite viewers to participate in a Jerusalemite culinary-design experience.

Butu House

France, 2019. 34 min. Japanese. Subtiltes hebrew, english.

Escapism is not necessarily achieved by travelling to a different place or beyond one׳s body and mind but sometimes it is a channel out of society’s conventions and the accepted way of life. The film ButoHouse by directors Ila Bêka, Louise Lemoine describes a random stroll on the streets of Tokyo that leads the filmmakers to a small door in a strange-looking house. Inside, they find a man who has spent the past 14 years building his house by himself, alone and with no plan to guide him. A butoh dancer, the man improvises freely with his body, as well as with concrete.

After the screening we will hold a zoom talk with the filmmakers.

Entrance by registration here

Production: Filippo Clericuzio
