What terrifies us is the unknown: behaviours, words or clothes other than standard. People are afraid to be different, they prefer to abandon their individuality in favour of fitting in. The performance workshop titled Creepy (which sounds similar to the word crêpe) will provide an opportunity to break customary patterns of behaviour using the rules of composition and colour harmony or disharmony. The action will be based on inscribing the body in the surroundings with the help of crêpe paper – a material that is often used in the practice of Przemysław Kwiek, a contemporary performer. A sense of community with a tree, swing, bench or another human being; closeness, colour, composition, living picture. By wrapping crêpe paper around ourselves and other elements of the surroundings, we will become a living picture, we will be strange, we will assume poses reflecting our moods, emotions and feelings. Integrated with the body, crêpe will turn into a medium bringing us closer to painting – we will become a live installation, surprising and astounding passers-by, breaking the monotony of the everyday.
