All In

Daniel Hellmann | Layton Lachman | Anne Welenc

What happens when togetherness becomes threeness? »All In« deals with triadic love relationships in which three people meet in the constellation of a triangle. Loving as a threesome questions just about everything we think we know about love, and requires the participants to enter a new terrain where there are few experiences and templates to fall back on. Three performer:s weave together collected interview material from people with triadic relationship experience into a polyphonic web of acting, dancing and singing that foregrounds the diversity of love forms. The socially accepted dual relationship model is questioned and encouraged to think differently about love and to open up new spaces and possibilities. And not just for love, but for all areas of life in which we limit ourselves by clinging to seemingly fixed models.


Daniel Hellmann is a dance and theater maker, singer and performer living and working between Zurich and Berlin. Layton Lachman is a performer, dancer and choreographer who has recently moved to Berlin after seven years of working in San Francisco. Anne Welenc is an actress and performance artist living in Berlin. All In is the first joint work of the three artists.
