›Don’t Touch My Heart‹, 2021/ ABA Berlin by Elena Francalanci with Axier Iriarte, David Eder
›Don’t Touch My Heart‹ is a performance/installation that has as the central point of the research the heart. The heart as a movement, as sound/beat, as motor, as emotional reference, as the constant rhythm. The live motor of the performance is the actual development of the heartbeat of the performers, with a live evolution of it, possible because of a stethoscope-microphone attached to the breast. It creates a relationship between each other’s beats, making the heart move the body, embodying the organ itself. It is a manifestation of the pure and raw beat of the heart, celebrating life developing through different states of the mind and of the body.
Elena Francalanci is an Italian performer and artist based in Berlin.
