Itziar Barrio. Everybody is looking for something (THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE), 2011.

Description:
THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE consists of the re-creation of building a scene in real time.
The project exists as a set of guidelines which are carried out for 4 days by 4 performers who work closely with a theater director.
The main objective of the group is to create a single scene.
Every action is recorded during the four days.
The project, based on
the dialogue between film and scenic-theatre languages, explores the human need to create rules in
order to organize social groups and our immediate realities.
Itziar Barrio is interested in realities and in showing their limitations and ambiguities as truth, through analysis of their forms of representation. So, art, film, television, the performing arts and the Internet take the floor as work tools and objects for experimentation and analysis. Her interest not only lies in the story that upholds the realities but in its recreations, its techniques for showing them or fictionalizing them.
