Was a wonderful experience
in collaboration with Dinamene Oliviera
and Paulo Estrelinhas
Coming from the theatre, I explore ensemble work in new ways, engaging the audience in co-creative experiences.
I see this non-hierarchical social structure of performance theatre as a model to explore the possibilities of non collaborative civilization.
The travellers of Nazaré, who made it till the end of the jouney despite the rain.
The performance-cycle SEVEN SEALS is a journey through 7 spaces. I am fascinated with the similarities of different spiritual and cultural backgrounds. For instance, the importance of the number 7. There is the 7 chakras in ancient vedic philosophy, the 7 valleys in sufism, the 7 days of creation, or the 7 lights of the jewish Menora. SEVEN SEALS is a non-confessional journey through the ideological and spiritual heritage of humankind.
We did SEVEN SEALS with different artists 7 times in Berlin, now I travel with the 7meter tunnel and the ideas of former participants to do SEVEN SEALS in different places, such as New Zealand, Latvia, Indonesia and Portugal. Vol.14 will close the second cycle of 7, so
I am already looking for the ideal place and artist to do the last 7 performances.
BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER
during the 2017 Performance art Weekend at Cell63.
I work in performance-cycles, as the friction between the momentary and the continuous fascinates me.
The performance-cycle UNTIL DEATH DO US PART deals with our existential dependencies, questioning what we need for our incorporation here on earth in 7 chapters: nature, heart, water, seeds and eggs, blood and breath, skin and brain. “Brain” is the final chapter, and will bring the cycle to a close, after a dozen years this autumn in Berlin with a 42-day performance.
At Cell63 I will combine the chapters `water´ and `blood and breath´ in the performance `blood is thicker than water´. 21min
