PREMIERE: Bitte nehmen Sie doch etwas Platz! // DOSSIER 3-D-Poetry// Marion Dieterle // 29/11/19 // ehrenfeldstudios Köln


How do we sit down? How much space does an individual take? What do we perceive as irritation or distress? What stands between us and where do we locate ourselves? What is to defend, to repress, to assert? How much distance do we need from each other? Can I be for myself? Where does my body begin?
Loud behaviour, stoic perseverance, the better starting position, agility or simply the larger volume – with the use of bodies, gestures and body extensions, the dancers Oleg Kaufmann and Bryce Kasson develop different strategies to compete with each other for space. In the struggle to live together, the absurd goes hand in hand with the existential.
