AEON (II)

Open Air Live Installation.
Free admission.

Aeon is the time of the planet, geological transformations take eons. They exceed the presence of the humans, they embed them into the long duration of the landscape.

In two parts, the artist and writer Sandra Man and the artist and choreographer Moritz Majce, each of them together with three dancers, invite you to meet in the urban nature of a wasteland in Berlin Lichtenberg. Located next to the six-lane Landsberger Allee, surrounded by apartment blocks and shopping malls, you will find a place opening itself up to silence, vastness and to the future.

Landsberger Allee 320, 10365 Berlin
Entrance: Gate at the roundabout at Möbel Höffner

Part I
Sandra Man: The Reunion

August 5 + 6, starting at 19.30

In a live installation of two texts, dedicated to The Swamp and The Street, Lisa Densem and Joséphine Evrard let themselves be moved by the real landscape and by imaginary ones. Delving into the deep times of the planet, we will come together elsewhere.

Together with the performers, Sandra Man is working on ways of speaking a text that open up to the ones who are present as well as to a future. The continuous speaking of the performers and the vastness of the landscape without stage and auditorium allow for a new relation between speaking and listening. The words are calling us, and at the same time the tale is far away. The voices are addressing us, and at the same time they are going somewhere else. Within kindness and intimacy an unfamiliarity is welcomed; inside of nature the artificial is allowed to appear; within the human the program can reveal itself. At the periphery of the city, at the limit of being human, speaking and listening continue outside, in a new landscape.

One text is in English, the other one in German. The English translation is by Anna Galt.

PLEASE NOTE: This part was originally performed by three dancers, including Laura Siegmund. This time, Laura cannot take part.

Together with Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos, Samuel Draper, Mikael Marklund, Moritz Majce will present The Clearing.

One year ago, after the first lockdown, artist and choreographer Moritz Majce started to work intensely on Relational Flow, a movement practice that aims to create a living space in-between bodies. Letting themselves be moved by each other, the dancers take the relations between their bodies as source and material; they constantly feel where the others are and allow this sensation to move them.

From the beginning, Relational Flow, has been a practice not only in-between the dancers who are rather activating than performing it, but it includes also the visitors. Understood as sensing bodies rather than as watching spectators, the moving space is flowing through the audience and is happening around them, crossing and enveloping them.

Relational Flow is an ongoing practice research that fully unfolds itself only in the presence of visitors. In the frame of Aeon II the part named “The Clearing” is dedicated to the experience of Relational Flow. Inviting every body into the flow of presence it creates a sensation of being together even when we are apart from each other. Taking place on the vast wasteland on Landsberger Allee, “The Clearing” is opening up the space in-between us humans within the landscape.
