Krisztián Kristóf usually experiments with different narrative forms, which are getting their final shape strained through different media.
For this evening, the Ukradená Galerie will function as a Kamishibai, a storytelling device that was popular during the Depression of the 1930s and the post-war period in Japan. This type of street-theatre is similar to a slide projector without electricity - the storyteller manually changes paintings in a small box as the tale proceeds. Each picture is concluded with just enough words to keep the story afloat for the viewers.
The starting point for the improvised image sequence is the life of Bruno Manser, but the main focus of this performance is the field between a documentary approach and the intimacy of its graphic representation.
The performance will last about 10 minutes.
Krisztián Kristóf is the resident of the Gallery Školská 28 within the frame of the residency program supported by the Visegrad Artist Residency Programs.
