The première of Bäckström’s play Motherfucker is the perfect end to Artes Mundi 5’s one-day conference Social Contours – Art at the Borders. Expanding on themes of control, manipulation and shifting power relations that are the subject of her films Rebecka 2004 and Kira Carpelan 2009, it explores the complex roles, positions and perspectives within a relationship. Combining theatre with live video feed she creates a disjunction between on stage performance and live video projection. Even with actors on a stage in front of them, will audiences be able to resist watching a mediated video image?
