Black Market

LUIT - Laboratoire Urbain d'Interventions Temporaires (FR)
What do you desire that can’t be bought for money? 

On the Black Market we negotiate what cannot be sold for money, what is priceless. 

We interrogate the value you are giving to your own desires.  We are the shadow of the stock exchange, the upside down of the trade. We are pirating the market place. We are dealing with the limits of the finance today. We are refusing the perpetual offer, the insatiable longing created by consumerism. We want to value the demand, as reasoned, impulsive, and impossible as it is. What risks are you willing to take to deal with us?

Mixing the codes of dealers and traders, BLACK MARKET questions the permission to desire outside of the frames set by the consuming society and how the stock exchange system can be turn into a common that we all share.

At the BLACK MARKET, speaking becomes a place where you take a risk, showing the weight of words, where every scene is literally negotiated with the audience. At the same time invisible and visible, dark and pleasant, secretive and outspoken, the actors baffle the opposition artist-public: we play together with the new rules that are proposed.

What do you desire that can’t be bought for money? 

Age: From 5 years
Duration: 90 min. You can join and leave the market as you wish

The participating festivals offer selected artists two connected residencies in two different EU countries in combination with an extensive coaching programme. The project is co-funded by the European Union through the Creative Europe programme.

Black Market was first performed at Imaginarius Festival, Portugal in May 2019.
