In English

Zhana Ivanova’s practice centers on rearranging and reconfiguring daily patterns and systems to which we have grown accustomed. She often uses performance in order to artificially induce situations in which social and power relations fluctuate.
Her constructions are initially formal and rule-governed; yet within them she insistently exposes the ambiguity of her own rules.
In this performance “Royalty”, the actors (informed, but unrehearsed) are performing a pre-scripted situation. The scene unfolds by means of a prerecorded soundtrack, each player keeping up with an individual voiceover. As what we hear falls in and out of synch with what we see, a fluctuating interplay unfolds between what is determined and what is spontaneous.
