In collaboration with the artist VA Wölfl, Susanne Linke conceived in 1985 ›Schritte verfolgen‹, an autobiographical solo in four acts based on her childhood experiences with language and speech. 22 years later, Linke has now reconstructed the work that defined her artistic credo with the dancers Armelle H. van Eecloo, Mareike Franz and Elisabetta Rosso. The result is a sensitive narration of the process of ageing and attaining maturity and a joyful affirmation of the desire to simply ›be‹ at any stage of life.
