MRFPRINT THIS PAGE
MRF is an acronym for “Madness Runs In The Family”, which would shortly say that insanity is inherited and travels through generations. Georgiev and Zarevska began this long-term process after the collaboration Georgiev and his mother had during 2014, when they created the performance “Freshly - Baked Theatrical Spaces”. The main subject of MRF are artistic family collaborations.
MRF is comprised of three larger segments:
1) initiating and documenting performance family collaborations, primarily in the larger family constellations of the two artists
2) production of the (namesake) stage performance
3) workshops and research; expanding of the possibilities for rhyzomatic connections with other people and practices.
The idea behind MRF performance has its roots in the concept of the refrain presented in the book “ A 1000 Plateaus” of Deleuze and Guattari. Refrain is repeatable, and that quality brings out certain possibilities, conditions and consequences. A child has eliminated fear when singing a refrain over and over again. Refrains make you feel safe and sound. In the same repeating spirit are the family stories - happy and sad scenarios. Sound and refrain are MRF’s basic motors; as music, but even more as states. Feeling safe and sound, and refraining from something are things we often get in a family constellation.
Authors and performers: Aleksandar Georgiev and Dragana Zarevska
The MRF stage performance is currently in process of production in SC Zagreb Kultura Promjene (CRO) and BUDA Kortrijk (BE). Dramaturgical intervention for the performance will be provided by Igor Dobricic (DE/NL). The residencies are organized as a result of APAP's libero partnership with Lokomotiva - Centre for New Initiatives in Arts and Culture (MK). The MR--F performance is aimed to act as a PR for the platform, thus, the performance is basically - its "spokes-performance". The MRF project is also supported by the LLB program in collaboration with Workspace Brussels with a production residency in Jan 2016, as well as a production and presentation residency organized by BUDA Kortrijk, for Feb 2016.
