I JUST WANNA FUCKIN' DANCE, TELL ME LIES TELL ME SWEET LIL LIES

ft. Manufacture School of Scenic Arts - Romantso, 1 April 2019

Because, in the end, you just wanna fuckin’ dance, don’t you?” The project was a collaboration between the students of the Athens School of Fine Arts and the students of Manufacture School of Scenic Arts in Lausanne.
Concept: Kiriakos Hadjiioannou and Poka-Yio

ULTRA PLAIN

ft. Most Mechanics Are Crooks - Goethe-Institut Athen, 26 March 2019

Ultra Plain was a disruptive balmasque within the Weasel Dance: The Mimetic in the Post-Digital Predicament, curated by Most Mechanics Are Crooks. The weasel dance is, perhaps, a successful depiction of the post-digital predicament. We, thereby, performed the post-digital trauma: the scars our online masks leave on our faces.

The Group; A temporary Autonomous Hotel

ft. Ed Fornieles Studios, Omsk Social Club & Nina Runa Essendrop - 6th Athens Biennale ANTI, 9 & 10 November 2018

An immersive LARP, a 4* participatory experience, where the artists – working with this underlying emotional representation of architecture – investigated the structure of the house but as a hotel. The LAB12 members took their new identities and the “key” of the hotel room at the reception of Esperia Palace and the moment they entered the room, the live action role play began.
