Tim Behren / Overhead Project

Das Ineinandergreifen von  (Raum-) Geometrie und Politik steht in der künstlerischen Arbeit der Kompanie Overhead Project momentan im Vordergrund: Welche Rolle spielen Architektur und räumliche Anordnungen im politischen Kontext und wie beeinflussen sie gesellschaftliche „Machtstrukturen“? Wie können diese Beobachtungen choreographisch-dramaturgisch für einen performativen Raum, der die klassische Passiv-Anordnung der Zuschauenden auflöst, umgesetzt werden und somit ein offenes Feld für die Interaktion zwischen Performer*innen und Publikum schaffen.

Marcela Levi & Lucía Russo | Improvável Produções

In 1968, artist Lygia Clark said: "The House is the Body: Labyrinth". Thinking with her we now say: "The Street is the Body: Intrusion is Labyrinth“. We want the noises, the bifurcations, the unforeseen deviations, the turbulences, the shocks from the outside, from the street. We want the nauseating sensation and the vertigo of swinging, of suspending, of entering into moving arrangements. We want to move towards a labyrinthine dramaturgy - that leads and disorients - full of opacities, swerves and cuts; a dramaturgy that twists unity and clarity.

While companies and states use the latest technologies to prevent riots in advance, the possibilities for activists and trade unions to resist are limited. So what can strike and resistance strategies look like to keep up with the power of the big players? And how can art find contemporary forms to visualize and question these developments?

Wie beeinflusst Diversität im Bezug auf Geschlecht und Herkunft eine Choreographie? Wie wirkt sich die Konstellation von Körpern im Raum auf die Bedeutung der performativen Situation aus? Vor allem unter der Voraussetzung, dass keine weiteren Informationen vorhanden sind für den Zuschauer als pure Bewegung im Raum?

Lea Letzel

Das Projekt ›SOG‹ von Lea Letzel changiert zwischen Konzert und Theater, indem die Figur des Flötisten auf der Bühne nicht nur die musikalischen Kompositionen spielt, sondern gleichzeitig auch in die szenische Konstruktion und Rekonstruktion der Sogwirkung der Stücke involviert ist.

Surface Connection is a live performance that explores the concept of queer space, objects and the relationship between queer bodies through a series of audiovisual interactions where we touch/vibrate/fluctuate/excite surfaces and objects. In our collaboration, we channel our camp sensibility and create performative actions by “vibrating”, “deviating” and “disrupting” bodies, objects, and surfaces from their normative representations and their linear paths.

We have already seen tragedy in the theater, began to understand the principles of tragedy unconsciously and the audience witnesses various variants of the tragedy in the theater. In my research, I wondered why the tragedy in the theater did not work as before.
