DO IT MAYRA
Dampfzentrale Bern // 26., 28 March 2021 // 8 pm
Do it Mayra features the auto fictional character of Mayra, an artist who is writing her new piece: “Illusions of togetherness”. The performance traces her process of creating this piece and focuses particularly on the failed ideas.
Through concerts, trash stand-up comedy, and hardcore post internet dances, Mayra explores feelings of power, excitement and sensuality. She invites the spectators to enter her world, and eventually leads them towards the creation of a collective work: “Illusion of togetherness”.
With a mix of self-mockery, borrowed statements, and extreme “drama queen” moments, Do it Mayra expresses the desires of an artist, facing a neoliberal world.
