As already mentioned I am very happy that “she came, she saw, she said: meme” has been selected for the MADE Festival! Today I saw the jury’s comment on the website and wanted to share it with a big Thank You to my collaborators, my supporters, the festival organizers, the jury and you people who keep looking here for some news! I can’t even put in words how excited I am and will be for the MADE Festival and she having a come-back!
“Die selbstgefällige Meinung, man habe längst durchschaut, wie und was man auf andere Menschen und Kulturen projiziert, wird von dieser Performance klug und virtuos aufgelöst.”
(ENG: The self-proclaimed opinion that one as a spectator has already finished the job of how to perceive and what to project on other people and their culture, is being dismantled in a smart and virtuosic way.)
Thank YOU! Danki for your support! The Kill Joys will be back in Zurich on the 9th of June @ Toni Areal. Will post soon, till then hugs and kisses and keep on fighting!
TONIGHT! to the country of chocolate, clocks and the alps, The Kill Joys are comin’ to AUAWIRLEBEN THEATERFESTIVAL BERN @ 22:00
The next performance(s) are awaiting!!
On the 12th of May at 18:30 “INVERSUM” will be born @ Mousonturm Frankfurt. Afterwards it will be (re)born two more times (for now) on the 13th of May at 16:00 and 18:30.
Though it is not my own project, I have been working on the project of director Isabella Roumiantsev for the past weeks as a choreographer and would love to see you there.
A performer, a dancer and the universe. The endlessly large is mirrored in the endlessly small. Between them lies a water basin, around which the audience sits as if attending a ritual. The acoustic intensity of the dance performance INVERSUM directs ears and eyes towards the heavens. But for Isabella Roumiantsev this is neither sublime nor harmonious, but rather dissociative, arrhythmic, twisted, and paranoid: “Scattered into innumerable particles, the cosmic body seeks out its integrity as an endlessly vast space, which stretches outwards beyond itself. In a billion year’s cycle it suffocates in its own void and gives birth to itself, over and over again. Substance, identity, space and time are inverted and distorted in its restless sleep. The cosmos pursues its own paradox into a reality, in which it can decipher itself.”
I would like to invite you to this gallery talk TONIGHT! For those who cannot make it, there will be a recording also soon.
Gallery reflections is a series of public discussions on institutions, artistic critique, and curatorial practices moderated by anthropologist Jonas Tinius. The encounters take place in the ifa-gallery as part of the annual programme, crisscrossing the overall themes and decentring the focal points of the annual programme Untie to tie: Colonial Legacies and Contemporary Societies at IFA-Galerie Berlin
