» GHETTO GUCCI
In Ghetto Gucci artists from Haiti and Sweden invite the audience to reflect on the role of visions, dreams and life goals in our lives. Whether we live in great poverty or in enormous wealth, consumerism tells us what to think and how to act. How can we collectively find alternatives? Art offers other perspectives. With art, we can engage with each other with our bodies, with real emotions, create real exchanges and give each other support. The group of performers have collectively discovered that through dance and performance, they can develop another form of freedom and alternative ways to communicate. By creating and dancing together the artists become intimate with life in new ways. Music, movement and props enable them to formulate new hope and new goals. Ghetto Gucci is a performance developed jointly by Swedish and Haitian artists under the direction of the Swedish choreographer Carima Neusser.
