Love me please! Begging for love. A face. An emotion of a desperate human being. Tired, confused and betrayed. Isolated and enclosed is seeking for love, requiring inclusion. Place: Adem Jashari square - The corner close to EU Office in Kosovo.

Fitore Alísdóttir Berisha

Begging for love. A face. An emotion of a desperate human being. Tired, confused and betrayed. Isolated and enclosed is seeking for love, requiring inclusion.

Fitore Alísdóttir Berisha has build the intriguing contrast of the very exposed commercial slogans of loving the city or country into an invitation for the cities or countries "loving" the marginalized and isolated. In this case is a call for Europe to love the citizens of Kosovo left isolated for a very long time now. Fitore is making an artistic protest. She is inviting you to join the protest and be part of the begging for love. With her art she has created a place for you to place yourself and your face in the box behind the desperate face for love. Make photos of yourself inside the box and spread the image and the slogan under the hashtag #lovemeplease and #hapudemia2020.

RadiOh Europaby Acton Hero (UK) in collaboration with LES TOMBÉES DE LA NUIT, Rennes, France

Since 2018, UK-based artists Gemma Paintin & James Stenhouse (who work together under the name Action Hero) have been travelling through Europe in their camper van, asking strangers to sing them a love song. Having spent more than 300 days and nights on the road, they’ve collected over 1000 love songs in 47 different languages.
This month, they were due to travel to Prishtina in their van to record the voices of Kosovans singing about love. With travel no longer possible, Action Hero are collaborating remotely with Teatri ODA and local artist Daniela Markaj to record Kosovans singing about love, even in these difficult times. For one day only these love songs, recorded during the pandemic, will be played on the streets of Prishtina: listen out for the voice of a friend, neighbour or lover! And if you want to add your voice to the collection, get in touch.

OH Europa  is presented thanks to the mobility programme of the IN SITU platform in the frame of the ACT project, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

Silver Boom SILVER BOOM is a performative intrusion of senior women in public space. The unique work questions the relationship between city space, gender, and age. This research is interested in the emergence of collective consciousness through the celebration of dancing experienced women in our urban landscape. Place: Starting point: Skenderbeg square

Choreographer: Anna Anderegg (Asphalt Piloten) / Switzerland, Germany

SILVER BOOM is a performative intrusion of senior women in public space. The unique work questions the relationship between city space, gender, and age. This research is interested in the emergence of collective consciousness through the celebration of dancing experienced women in our urban landscape.

What can we learn from these knowledgeable bodies? What wisdom and stories do these women have to tell us? What images and sensations do they send back to us? SILVER BOOM makes room for retirees living among us. The disruption of the daily rhythm in the city is intended to enable us to reflect on our values as a society today.

The choreographer Anna Anderegg and her team worked with a group of Kosovar citizens during a two weeks residency at ODA theater and share part of the process.

After the performance we will have a TALK with artists and participants on

HAPUDEMIA 2020

Dear friends of public space,

This year like never before, HAPU - The Festival of Art in Public Space was unavoidably closed from impossibility to open up with you, with the city, with the public space and with artists. Closure and distance doesn't necessarily mean a closure of our minds and souls and alienation from each other.

Exploring carefully possibilities of our encounters as well as introducing creativity and inspiration like never before, we are starting a process spread in time and space, identifying neurological punctures of our common space to enable another artistic epidemic, a hapudemia (opening up-demic) in the public space.

Hapudemia this year invites you to meet with artists time by time, to encounter fellow citizens, the open space, the city and the neighbourhood. To experience poetry in our cars through FM frequencies with actors and poets, local and international. Hapudemic will be also the begging for love and inclusion through the art of the performance by Fitore Alísdóttir Berisha. This spreading with also tackle and revive personal stories of the 90's that will be pinned in the map of city of Prishtina to be experienced by you through a phone and earphones.

This Hapudemia in Kosovo will also join ActionHero from United Kingdom with spreading love through songs in broadcasting of RadiOHEuropa, groaning an OH of the passion of singers and emotions of listeners.

The ones that are often forgotten in the social loneliness of Kosovo, the elderly woman, will invite you to experience  a hapudemic choreography developed during few weeks with artists of Asphalt Piloten from Switzerland and Germany with the choreographer Anna Anderegg.

We promise you other openings as long as this Hapudemic will last and we invite you to follow us in our social networks to find out more for opening that will happen one after another, spread in different times and spaces, physical and digital.

Hapudemia might not help in eradication of the virus that triggered the worldwide Pandemic, but surely  will trigger inside us, an opening with each other, with the space, with the city and the artists. After many long anxious and frustrating closures, Hapudemia this year will fill us with air, passion and compassion to jointly overcome these very difficult times for all of us.
