In his spectacular stage piece Coucou Bazar, Jean Dubuffet combined painting, sculpture, theatre, dance and music into a unique, multimedia work of art. On the occasion of the retrospective exhibition Jean Dubuffet: Metamorphoses of Landscape figures from Dubuffet’s extraordinary stage spectacle Coucou Bazar come to life in the exhibition space. In this video, the choreographer of the performance talks about the ideas behind his choreography: how he approached the project, the differences between this and previous performances, how he developed the two characters and what the specific characters of the two characters are, and what personally interests him in this piece by Jean Dubuffet. As Kiriakos Hadjiioannou is at the same time choreographed and performs the piece, he also talks about his experience, performing the piece, and the interaction with the audience.
