happy to announce my participation in the berlin weekend of performance art
with:
blood is thicker than water
I try to  create a situation which leads myself to an extraordinary experience because I  believe that this energy  and awareness is
shared with the audience in transcendent ways.
Inspirations and topics are as well personal as  existential.
The relation between the momentary situation and the larger  context
in time and space fascinates me, this is why l tend to work in performance cycles.
`blood is thicker than water´ is like a transition, using elements from one performance cycle that is about to close after a dozen years, `until death do us part´(I cobine the capters: water, blood, heart) and points to the upcoming performance cycle `letting go´.with Collin Edina Leach
we start 27.may at 1pm 
as part of  myPerformance in public space at the market on Herrfurth Platz
and arrive at 2pm. in the Gallery Allerstr 39 Berlin Neukölln.

Hope to see you there!

After the Festival there is a internationally hosted Performance Workshop, that I have the pleasure to assist and photoducument.

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.

UPCOMING:
BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER
during the 2017 Performance art Weekend at Cell63.
MAY 26-28.2017

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

I would like to thank the wonderful experiences, insights and collaborations of 2016 from the depth of my heart!I began to look for a platform to perform SEVEN SEALS in Israel, which did not happen, but instead I worked on the video performance ABSTRACT BODIES closely assisted by Zohar Weissman, who also recorded some songs with me for the BLOOM project, THANKS AND LOVE TO ISRAEL!

An Invitation by Forest Schrodt´s BALI FLOW CAMP brought me to Indonesia and as it was not possible to perform SEVEN SEALS there, I went on to the paradise-like island Gili Air to put up a workshop and performance of SEVEN SEALS VOL12 with the wonderful Malou Schyns, Paul Chabernou and Anna Bella. LOVE 2U wherever you are!

Dagmar Glausitzer Smith and Louisa Catucci, who once again organized the Performance Art Weekend Berlin, and put up a platform to map my 10 years performance `until death do us part´, and meet so many wonderful fellow artists. THANK U MY DEAR SUPERGIRLS!

After editing the footage of the V.U.P. live- action, the postproduction of Matthias Albrecht and the Soundmix of Aaron Hacker turned ‚very unimportant person‘ into a shortmovie- pearl. YOU ARE SO LOVELY!

Whilst working on my dear father Wieland Schmied’s archive of contemporay art with the visionary Egigio Marzona I found some time for several video performances. This one I would like to send you as a summary of what happened parallel to my pathways in the world:https://vimeo.com/193047239    14424729_10153983014905415_1072111592298716559_o

I THANK ALL THE MENTAL EMOTIONAL AND MATERIAL SUPPORTERS AND TEACHERS THAT CAME ACCROSS MY PATH AND I WISH EVERYBODY A TRULY EVOLVING 2017! UMBUNTU is an african word I learned this year, it means:I am because you are

OUTLOOK 2017:

The next SEVEN SEALS will happen in Nazaré (Portugal) shortly after their famous Carnival on the beach. In Autumn I will end the 10 years performance-cycle `until death do us part´with the 42-day performance `the calculating mind can not be trusted´ in Berlin.
