"I'm always looking for new ways to shatter the elitism that surrounds the art world", explains South African choreographer Robyn Orlin to describe her project of small audiovisual pieces called Babysitting Series. In these recordings, Robyn Orlin works with the security guards in the rooms of some of the world’s most prestigious galleries, such as the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin (2002), the Louvre Museum in Paris (2009) and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille, filming them in different situations. She considers them to be special babysitters who look after paintings and sculptures. And the fact is that galleries, as well as being spaces for exhibition, discovery, conservation and history, are also places where security guards work every day, welcoming the public and ensuring their safety and that of the works displayed.
The leading South African dancer and choreographer Robyn Orlin is known in her country because of the ongoing provocation her works cause. Winner of the French government’s highest award for merit in the arts, for the past thirty years she has been transforming the boundaries between performative art and dance. She portrays the difficult and complex reality of South Africa through her eclectic work, drawing on disciplines such as video, the plastic arts and text. In each project she seeks ways to include the community and the public. Her starting point for each new production is her immediate surroundings, which act as a springboard to explore issues related to culture, history and identity. In her works, the audience is often on stage during the performance while the artists mingle among the audience. Robyn Orlin would like everyone to be a dancer.

In Naves Matadero, she will showcase her audiovisual installation about the project she carried out with museum security staff, called Babysitting Series. She will give a performance/lecture entitled One Hour with Robyn and she will stage her work about freedom And so you see... our honourable blue sky and ever enduring sun... can only be consumed slice by slice... which features an amazing performance by Albert Khoza.
