apap production studio – Time to Meet: Marta Navaridas and Alex Deutinger "Pontifex"

Showing by Marta Navaridas, Alex Deutinger

‘Time to Meet’ is a series of open rehearsals and discussions, a meeting place for exchange and feedback on artistic processes, this time with the artists Marta Navaridas and Alex Deutinger.
Marta and Alex are developing a performance series called ‘Iconic Rhetorics’, which includes the award-winning performance ‘Your Majesties’ – based on The Nobel Peace Prize Lecture of Barack Obama, as well as the recently premiered ‘Queen of Hearts’ – based on confessions of Princess Diana. They are now in the process of creating "Pontifex" – a performance based on tweets and feats of Pope Francis: "Whether he likes it or not, the 266th Pope Francis cannot escape the clutches of pop culture."
