You know the Feeling

Blomen/Moré/Reiniger

At dusk in a clearing in the forest, three figures stand and sing a song. They are fans. They search for themselves and only themselves in the lyrics of others. They follow them around the world on concert tours, in Twitter posts, merchandise stores and the comment columns of Youtube channels. They are full of longing and obsessive love, for themselves in the face of their idols and for the small community they form together.

»You know the Feeling« is a theater performance and a concert. In five covers of the pop song »People, I’ve been sad« by Christine and the Queens, Blomen/Moré/Reiniger deal with identification, appropriation and populism as well as the social conditions of loneliness and coming together. In direct eye contact with the audience, they search for images, narratives and figures that make the ambivalent relationship between the longing for individual expression and collective experience palpable. They ask what remains after we have sung together in chorus:

If you / Disappear, then I’m /Disappearing too
If you / Fall apart, then I’m / Falling behind you

 

Blomen/Moré/Reiniger are a theater collective and know each other from their studies at the University of Hildesheim. They are interested in the intersection of theater and reality and let autobiographical narratives meet fictional characters in their stage plays; as an intimate and at the same time public negotiation of their present. At Ballhaus Ost they showed their debut »Vor Sonnenaufgang« at the Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2022 as part of Introducing.

 

On 10.2. after the performance: Karaoke Night with Soroa at the bar!
