Recording: 2023-03-04 , HAU3 Hebbel am Ufer (Video © Bickmann & Kolde GbR)

Núria Guiu

Spiritual Boyfriends

Spirits, Jinns & Avatars | HAU Hebbel am Ufer (HAU3)

Production Details / Press Releases

A solo performance which revolves around yoga as a new form of self-discipline and biopower. Núria Guiu ironically approaches the practice through a visual iconography that creates a bridge between the Indian masters of the late 19th century, contemporary YouTubers, and the Holi festivals. Spirituality becomes flesh and the immaterial is replaced by the virtual; the internet as a new deity which observes from above.
