Bombarded by tutorials and guide books, we are usually offered quick and easy problem-solving that bypasses the efforts required for achieving our goals without the expense of real life experience. ‘Five steps to save the world’ is a shortcut participatory performance delivered by two ‘experts’ for just one visitor at a time. The spectator enters a space between fiction and reality where each step equates to a choice and processing action. Facing the impossible task of saving the world in 20 minutes, the work intends to distill and imprint the things that can be ‘saved’ from this world.
Five Steps to Save the World was created and produced as part of The Performance Shop Athens by Pelma-Lia Haraki under the umbrella of Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2018.
