Audience Talk following 'Have A Safe Travel' by Eli Mathieu-Bustos

Join Eli Mathieu-Bustos as he confronts his first racial profiling encounter. Through immersive storytelling and unique choreography, delve into the oppressive systems at play. And stay afterwards for an audience talk.

In this talk we set the aim of sharing experiences connected to the topic of the performance while creating a safe space for everyone. For this reason at the beginning of the talk the audience will be divided into two groups: POCs and white spectators. In this first part experienced will be shared in the small, more omogeneus group. After gathering the thoughts together, the two groups will reunite and confront their experiences starting from the inherent difference of their perspective.

About the piece

Have A Safe Travel

Have a Safe Travel tells the story of a train ride. It could have been an ordinary trip, until three police officers stopped Eli Mathieu-Bustos and subjected him to his first racial profiling. Immersed in the memory of this event, which is as banal as it is violent, we discover what the first procedures of an oppressive system are all about.
In this first solo, the choreographer was able to transform the systemic violence he experienced into a strong and unique performative material developed with the help of the De Caelo technique. This technique, conceptualized by the artist himself, consists in leaving an important place to emotional intelligence, situated knowledge and improvisation. But it also calls on the tools of astrology, the sky charts and to perceive how the stars can inform us about our bodies.
