“A reenactment of a state of mind, the state of mind of someone who has nothing to lose”
Dror Liberman’s performance The Lowest Spot in Tel Aviv is a piece designed as a guided tour through the shady streets and alleys of a notorious neighborhood, which is also a journey following the artist’s attempts to escape reality and become a “superhero” while exposing his fears, failures and vulnerability.
Every stop in the tour is dedicated to a different element of the superhero fantasy and the reality on the street. The performer discusses and demonstrates how fantasy and street life both confront him with his inherent death wish and depression, his religious background, and his relationships with family members and love interests. Losing all shame is the final barrier in the artist’s journey toward living his fantasy, and is also the inevitable lesson learned in becoming a street artist.
