With a visual axis influenced heavily by the aesthetic of 17th century still life painters, Ukrainian performance artist Ihor Podolchak's Las Meninas observes the situation in an emotionally and psychologically beleaguered family - beleaguered because the ailing son continually torments his father, sister and mother with a myriad of insistent demands. Podolchak's idiosyncratic approach involves heavily fracturing the narrative and asking each viewer to connect the elements of the story and experience in his or her mind. Oleksandr Schetynsky composed the unusual score.
