Free entrance

Showing of the next phase of the project by Masoumeh Jalalieh, Laura Pudelek, Rotraund Kern, Agnes Schneidewind, Robert Steijn and Daniel Zimmerman. This time the showing is called: Sun/ Moon/ kisses and Planet Earth. The artists research how they can create a new cosmology that gives a new perspective on how to relate to the turbulent times we live in. They explore through physical states, touch, music, dance and film to create counter-narratives and re-wilding myths to open still unknown potentials to activate our resilience and resistance to the dominant thinking, of thinking of power & violence while causing pollution. Time for dream time.

“A caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.”
Maya Angelou

We construct borders to extend our property, attachment, and freedom but what is the line for these borders? Don’t we limit others‘ freedom by extending our own borders?
In Maya Angelou’s poem, ‘the bird opens his throat to sing. The song of the bird is pleasing to the human ear, but at the same time, it is a sign of the bird’s imprisonment. In this image, choreographer Masoumeh Jalalieh found an intriguing starting point for a new performance, which at this point is a work in progress.
As an Iranian dancer and artist, borders are & were always highlighted to me. Whether the geographical ones that shaped the past and present map of my homeland and its relation to other countries, or the cultural borders that came to existence as a result of each geographical and political change within the history of my home country.
