PREMIERE: Cellar & Secrets INSIGHTS // Din A13 tanzcompany // 10/10/19 // Barnes Crossing
The second part of the trilogy “Cellar and Secrets” is dedicated to the “inner cellar” and gives deep insights into personal traumas. Traumas leave visible and invisible traces in (body) memory. Traces of what they have experienced are consciously and unconsciously traced by those affected to the present day. They inscribe themselves in the soul’s grave as puzzle pieces, which uncontrollably seek their way out of the “inner cellar” as a flood of images. Every traumatized person develops his own methods to close the doors of his personal cellar, methods that are often hidden from him and from outsiders. They are opened by unforeseeable events: Voices that catch up with the person and whisper the long forgotten and unknown; situations and images that emerge from nowhere; “uninvited guests” who enter this door without warning.
The current production is based on research into video interviews
with affected persons and experts: Fugitives, war-affected persons, victims of domestic violence, child abuse or sexual abuse as well as therapists and counsellors.
The production takes place in cooperation with BARNES CROSSING.
