Zargrup is a duo of performers who considers life as a performance, the metaphor of the existence as a unique and transcendent act: here and now. The hardness of the economic and social reality in Spain inspires them this reflection : Will this system conduct the artists to live as indigents ? The duo slips so inside the skin of misery and wandering. They go all over the streets looking for abandoned or thrown objects and settle in a place with their finds in order to reconstitute a foster home.

ze couepel
This duo thinks the performance as a participative and relational act involving living arts, literature, photography and visual arts. Their field of exploration is focused on the notion of responsibility of the individual in the social fabric. In Préavis de Désordre Urbain, Ze Coeupel brings us in an ephemeral office of which the aesthetic is borrowed from those used by the CIA, the FBI or the Stasi in the 50’s. In this interrogatory room the performers, as intelligence agency officers, intent to define the way to save the city of Marseille from a hypothetical « danger ». Although hypothetical, this danger takes its roots in the current social, political, media and cultural context.
