Site-specific alternative-economy performance

A series of meetings with "smugglers" of the intimate. The spectators exchange their ticket against a money, designed for the visit of "our autonomous country." They can buy an intimate experience, a poem, a clandestine bottle of water ... This performance incites a reflection on the value of things, hidden values and the value of hidden things.

This show is structured as a journey through a space or a predefined place, with specifically created images. The team is flexible according to each project and location, but the journey form and the concept of monetary exchange structures the experience.

Contraband was presented in Italy in 2007 as part of the Aria festival.
