A Bathing Performance is about nakedness and care

A Bathing Performance – a happening of nakedness and care

The performance artists Petros Konnaris welcomes you to his Master Thesis (Theatre Academy of Uniarts Helsinki, Live Art and Performance Studies) project A Bathing Performance. The performance invites one audience member at a time to share a personal situation with him: the secular ritual of bathing. It focuses on creating a gentle and safe environment to explore one's nakedness in an intimate, platonic way. “My interest is to share a meeting of nakedness and care with another person” says the artist Petros Konnaris. In addition to the 1-1 (one with one) performance that can be experienced in June 2017 in Helsinki, the art project includes discussions about nakedness and related topics. The first discussion that will initiate the performances happens on 1st of June in a private apartment in Viikki at 10:00.
