Michikazu Matsune & Maxim Ilyukhin


Performance in englischer Sprache mit japanischem und russischem Akzent

The unique Japanese-Russian duo Michikazu Matsune and Maxim Ilyukhin is back on the brut stage! In their new work OBJECTIVE POINT OF VIEW, they focus on the issue of familiarity and strangeness, playfully and humorously juggling cultural ascriptions, social identifications and (un)true stories. Michikazu Matsune and Maxim Ilyukhin ‒ who grew up in Japan and Russia, respectively  ‒ stage the encounter of different world views, perspectives, individualities and experiences in OBJECTIVE POINT OF VIEW. They venture into a game that drifts back and forth between sense and nonsense, fact and fiction, constantly becoming entangled in the other’s and the audience’s gazes while looking for themselves. 

Michikazu Matsune and Maxim Ilyukhin have appeared at brut before, with their joint piece PEEPING M, which dealt with the issue of identification between voyeurism and projection in the form of a peepshow.

Audience discussion on 22 November after the performance.
