TIERWESEN

Auf dem Rasen im Kaiser-Wilhelm-Park kniet ein junger Mann mit zerzaustem, rotbraunem Haar. Er sieht sich um, wie um sicherzugehen, dass ihn niemand beobachtet. Fast rutsche ich in den Teich, weil ich mich im Schilf verstecke. Es besteht kein Zweifel, dass er es ist: Newt Scamander.

ÜBER DEN ÄQUATOR

Wir stehen auf dem Parkplatz. Mit einem neongelben Stift zieht Beni eine Linie quer durch die Stadt. Als große Karte hat er sie ins Schaufenster der WerkStadt gehängt. Das ist Teil der kleinen Umfrage, die er zum Leben in Katernberg macht. Es dauert keine Minute, dann stellen sich zwei Nachbarn zu uns. 

Blue Skies- Bodies in Trouble: Life Science - Life Writing

How do new possibilities for human life that have been enabled by biomedical advances lead to marginal experiences? For example, how do people feel who are alive today thanks to reproductive medicine? The research training group of the Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität Mainz ›Life Sciences, Life Writing: Borderline experiences of human life‹ is situated between biomedical explanations and life experience. In short talks, three doctoral candidates offer individual insights into the focal aspects.

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.
