Bioswop

SEE!

In a landscape of dance and text and sculptures, six performers swop their biographies. They approach each other’s lives and statuses, breaking away from the fixations in their own bodies. Their memories are pictorial descriptions of biographies, from the USA, Romania, Korea, the Czech Republic, Australia and the GDR. The biographies come into motion and merge into a collective history. While some grow up in an intellectual extended family, others have to flee from the hell of a late communist dictatorship or struggle through in the precariat of a Californian trailer park. Some are socialized in the prefabricated buildings of the Eastern Bloc, others in large houses on the beach. All of them eventually go on to dance training. And for this evening, they are together on stage in Berlin. The audience surrounds the performers in their unconditional search for similarities and differences – and together with them asks the question: What actually makes us? And how much can we bear from each other?

 

The performance collective SEE! (SE Struck, Alexandra Knieps) from Cologne has been developing hybrid performance formats since 2005, staging open networks with a self-sufficient formal language that always addresses communalization and participation on theater stages and in urban social contexts. They were at Ballhaus Ost for the first time in 2018 with »ok panik« and most recently presented the dance solo »Sonderbare IRRE«, which was already their third invitation to the theater festival FAVORITEN.
