PREMIERE: ACCIDENT EXERCISES // ROTTERDAM PRESENTA (JAN ROHWEDDER, STINE HERTEL, NIELS BOVRI) // 02.05.2019 // ERGO IPSUM, DÜSSELDORF


Shit happens! Was an accident fate or coincidence? Was it embarrassing, just tragic or tragicomic? Is it possible to prevent accidents at all? Can they be rehearsed? Every accident is preceded by a loss of control. The performance collective Rotterdam Presenta practices accidents in the archives of an insurance company. We practice the faux-pas, the moment of the collision. What do we see when we stop time at the moment of the collision? Our mistakes, the unsovereign action, the moment when we look bad and it’s too late for a new plan.
