Book is a Book is a Book
Running time '60
Can a book, a simple yet mysterious object, become a space to be explored performatively? Producer of magical spatial and temporal dimensions, the book is at the centre of this new project by Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl, awarded in December 2020 with the "Silberen Hase" by Die Besten of Hochparterre in the Design category. The spectators, wearing earphones, move across different pages journeying through images, words, sounds. Book is a Book is a Book is a place where you’ll travel through the mind and with the mind, an object that creates connections across time, space, dreams and memories, an immersive experience enabling the audience to project themselves in an elsewhere and to open themselves to the pleasure of imagination.
Trickster-p is an artistic research project created by Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl. The project’s poetics cross boundaries between artistic vocabularies and invite the spectators to open their perceptive horizons and recreate reality in the borderland between inner vision and outer vision. Its most significant works include performances and installations translated in several languages and presented in over 30 countries in Europe, Asia, Australia, North and South America. In 2017 the group was awarded the prestigious Swiss Theatre Prize. The company is currently in residence at LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura.
