Glass Barriers


6 pm Introduction by the curator Beatris Wakaresko
7 pm Performance “The Blind Leader” with Camilla Brogaard and Katrina Bastian - Concept and Choreography: Rachel Monosov

We live in a class society in which it is very difficult to climb up the social ladder. Social mobility is not impossible, but strongly influenced by family resources. Economic, social and cultural capital determine the reality of life for all of us – for some this results in privileges, for others in discrimination. People who have experienced a class change move between adaptation and exposure. Speech, movement, gestures and confidence can reveal the class. Only a few manage to climb up the social ladder addressing their social background, which is why classism often remains invisible.
