As part of the Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival GuruGuru is performed in Viennoise Space. The public can participate in this event. Since 1999, Ant Hampton has explored the use of live instructions given
to unrehearsed performers. This gave rise to the ongoing Autoteatro
series wherein participants find themselves exchanging audience and
performer roles by simply following instructions, often via headphones.
GuruGuru is the most adventurous project so far. Five participants are
led by a sixth character on screen, animated and somewhat disturbing.
His twin roles of marketing and spiritual Guru are confused by his
reliance on untested and accident-prone technologies.There is a performance every hour and reservations are recommended. Participating costs 20LE
