PERFORMANCE STAND, BY ME. ESTEL BOADA


Saturday - March 8 - 19:00h. Galería de Cristal of the Palacio de Cibeles.



They say that in order to succeed, a stand has to be well located, innovative, tidy, have a good, clean and clear image, we can't let it go unnoticed, it has to stand out from the competition, generate curiosity and space for personal interaction. Well, after 19 years, the perfect stand has arrived, he doesn't know it yet, but it has been an exclusive creation to stand out at the fair.

Performance of Pfff Historia d'una Fitball. Documentation. 2023.

His name is Stanley, he is 19 years old and he is... human.

Stand, by Me is a performance that wants to address the responsibility and the position of an art fair stand in an ironic and burlesque way.

"Stanley", our main character, created to live and die at the fair, doesn't know what the outside is, but he knows all about the strengths and weaknesses of this mobile architecture.

Unlike his family made of plasterboard, wood, glass and PVC, Stanley is human matter and therefore feels different from the rest. He tries to be like the rest of the stands: smooth, straight, monotonous, silent... But it is impossible, he has to understand that his strength is his uniqueness.

Through a corporal and vocal exploration, she finds the way to express herself and communicate with others, generating curiosity, empathy and humor.
