power structures - one-to-one

Although power structures are present in maybe all one-to-one encounters that we experience in the everyday - it is the Live Art one-to-one encounter that allows an open examination of this relationship, specifically as subject of the work.

If one-to-one is successful it is maybe because of it's ability to use, and in turn expose power structures - uncovering the weaknesses and flaws of the power structure itself. This vulnerability revealed, opens up a gap in which the individual and subjective exploration of the relationship between performer-participant can occur.
