Constanza Macras – Dorky Park´s production THE GHOSTS will be performed on March 10th and 11th 2017 at Hellerau, the European Arts Center in Dresden.  In this piece Constanza Macras worked with Chinese acrobats and circus performers. It looks like these artists, who once won fame and fortune for their country with their bodily discipline, have been forgotten and “decommissioned” by Chinese society, even though many of them are still quite young. They recall the “hungry ghosts” – according to Chinese popular mythology, lost souls who have been forgotten by their descendants and lead a miserable existence in an intermediate world. “THE GHOSTS” allows them a temporary return to the land of living, making their art and their stories visible once again.
