the bomb #2
In this performance Yelena collaborated with theatre maker Femke Verneij. Together they created an intimate interaction. The performance was inspired by the suicide bomber. Yelena and Femke both represented this phenomenon but tackled the public from opposite directions, Yelena approaching from a distance and Femke emerging from within. At first Yelena changed clothes and confronted the public. Then Femke emerged from a large travelbag that was hidden in the public before the performance began. Femke represented a bomb and confronted Yelena to detonate the explosion. The moral of this performance is that we are all mortal and vulnerable.
