Our work meshes aerial acrobatics, eletronic livesounds and (philosophical) texts to a complex net of intense intersections. We explore in this collective how things going on on stage can touch people, make them think? How can in the interspace between performer and public something get developed that opens up new perspectives? In an artistic way we raise questions that concern ourselves and societal structures we are embedded in. Movements becomes dynamic surfaces for associations, sounds become plastic material and given things become alterable.

In 2015 we developed the performance "Gefangen" (“Imprisoned”), which we performed on some open air events and festivals already.

“Gefangen“ ("Imprisoned") talks about prisoners, working people, the human machine, the everyday madness. People that only function as elements in a structured, normed and disciplined process. Breaks in the global arrangement are shown and at the same time questioned; how could a collective breakout from the current society look like? Of which material are the walls of prisons? Who is actually imprisoned and what makes people become prisoners? Can there be liberation? From what do we free ourselves and with whom do we form an alliance for that?

Artistic Text- and Sound-Performance with texts by Ilias Nicolau (Anarchist, Thessaloniki), Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (Pussy Riot), Ulrike Meinhof and the philosophers Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari.

Hard facts:

  • The performance has a duration of 35 minutes.
  • We like to perform Open Air in the darkness on our own construction. We can also bring our own light- and soundtechnics.
  • It's also possible to play indoors, we need two or three points for hanging, which are next to each other, of which each one should have a possible weight of 300 kg.
  • We can perform the piece either in english or in german.


Unfortunatly there is no english version of the trailer yet ... but the pictures remain the same :)
