Marielle Sterra und glanz&krawall zeigen Monteverdis frühe Oper (1607) an verschiedenen Orten im historischen Gebäude der Alten Nervenklinik der Charité. Unweit des Berliner Hauptbahnhofs befindet sich dieser blinde Fleck einer rational durchgeplanten Gesellschaft. ENTWEDER WIR BLEIBEN IM IRRENHAUS ODER DIE WELT WIRD EINS, steht dort auf einem Gemälde eines Patienten. Wolfgang Herrndorf, selbst Patient, schreibt 2010 in seinem Blog: „Einer geht immer auf und ab. Das ist der Traurigste.“ Eine Beschreibung, die auch auf Orfeo passt: Er gibt sich ganz seinem Verlust hin und überschreitet so die Schwellen der Realität. Was liegt dahinter? „Orfeo“ weiterlesen

Keep It Real 

is shameless and straightforwardly queer. A post-feminist influenza, highly contagious that can cause enjoyment.

The protagonist cyborg-bitches tease the thin border between fiction and reality, and their bitch magic goes overboard contaminating everything around them.

Zombies and cyborgs seem utterly human and these queer bodies possess dangerous political possibilities, but what is their power inside the theatre machinery?

The glittery skin of the bitches becomes a screen, and changes the see-through texture of the pretended real authenticity of the discourse. The effect is queering of queer and an anti-show show.

Sergiu Matis: Fake – the real deal


“Fake – the real deal” is an installative work that explores near future speculations in a dark room. The senses are orchestrated and manipulated, while temptations open options. The performers are voices, mostly without bodies that discuss the hot topic of the dance of the future, from their own perspective in the near future. Partly computer-generated voices, partly organic, or mostly organic and partly artificial, or fully organic and fully artificial, are the different levels of hybridisation in this cast. The voice of the elevator and Siri are trying to predict the future of dance, while some of the other voices are attached to body parts that used to dance and are still talking about their experience. The arrangement of words and sounds will compose a score of pleasure. Orgasmic voices and organic noises will be the texture of the dance. What will be visible is a matter of perspective.
