The title stands for “white magic”, reclaiming the word magic in an attempt to re-animate, both critically and sensibly, our modes of approaching topics we are concerned with. With short demonstration acts, the two performers invoke across their bodies the affective resonances of nature, money, technology and other such concerns.
“White” is a performance made of kinaesthetic rituals exploring the transmission of the political quality inherent in aesthetic gestures. Deviating from the usual statements in the arts, the political and the poetical are considered two movements of expression that activate the affective relation we have for the things we care for in this world.
