URBAN POLYCHROMIA is a site specific durational laboratory-performance designed for public spaces, developed by Jagna Anderson and p.u.r.e. - performative urban research ensemble.
POLYCHROMIA is a continuous work-in-progress, a process of finding ever new relationships between space, shape and color, performers and audience, pure form and possible poetry.
The core of p.u.r.e. work is questioning the relationship between us performing the city and the city performing us. Thus we approach the performance with a researcher or an “urban ecologist” mind. We are not creating a “spectacle” on the street, not trying to garner as much attention as possible: we rather work on the quality of attention itself.
We are looking for pedestrian quality of movements, for subtle ways of emerging in urban space, changing tempo & timing of actions, setting duration against the busy activities of the street.
