New York-based performance artist Marina Abramovic visited Athens invited by the Onassis Cultural Center to give a speech with Zvonimir Dobrović about the Abramovic Method, as part of the Cycle Transitions.1 -Balkans. The Abramovic Method trains audience members with the skills to perform and observe long durational performances. The method involves a series of exercises designed to heighten the participant’s awareness of their physical and mental experience.
Abramovic talked about the method and performance practice and of course the foundation of her Institute and inspired all of us who watched her explain how each and everyone can benefit from being more present in the moment, regardless of age, nationality, gender, race, sexuality, social class, physical ability, or native language.
It was really an extraordinary experience!
