OZZZZZ proposes a new look over the story of “The Wizard of Oz”, approaching our current global mobility and our contemporary concept of home.
After buying the cheapest flight in Ryanair website, our five performers dress up to the occasion (the blue and white dress and the ruby shoes) and attend to the check in at the airport. From that it starts a journey that tries to reenact Dorothy’s original journey. With no returning date and carrying only hand luggage, they will have to drift through the unknown city putting to the test their concept of home and ultimately finding their way back. Written postcards or skype conversations, parcels with local sausages or electronic interfaces mediate the communication between Dorothy and the world and measure the distance between herself and Home.
The journey of each performer will be recorded and all these materials will integrate the final performance which will be shaped as a multi-screen video installation.
