by 10 x 10 meters
NB! At Kanuti Gildi SAAL
Pikk 20, Tallinn, Estonia
March 28th 2012 an anonymous Estonian immigrant was on his way home, from Helsinki to Tallinn. 10 minutes after the departure of the ferry he jumped overboard into freezing sea. The rescue boats and helicopters couldn't find him. He was thought to be dead. Three weeks later he appeared to be alive and returned back home. What happened to him during those three weeks? This is a mystery that needs to be solved, in order to re-articulate the borders between the East and the West and re-think the capitalist vocabulary imposing the meaning of human life. Keywords: an empty island, an empty summer house, potato chips, a miracle.
10 x 10 meters is collective of performing artists operating since 2009. The intention of 10 x 10 meters is to provoke free form creativity, at the same time being inspired by space and absurdities of daily life. Limiting our actions by ten times ten meters, we are trying to concentrate on the essence of a concrete life situation and clean it from redutadant information. On the other hand ten times ten meters become a space which guides our actions and also turns us to rebel against it.
