Agata Siniarska (PL): BLINDSIGHT PART 2: THE SOFT ACT OF KILLING
A solo lecture performance for 50 000 dead cells, 10 billion bacteria, 23 litres of air, 7.8 Richter scale magnitudes and the audience.
The world’s a toxic mess, irradiated and full of injustice. We don’t aim to cause suffering, destruction, and death, but simply by living, buying things and throwing them away we have a terrible effect on the ecosystem. Siniarska takes on the role of detective and reveals herself to be the criminal. Where to situate ourselves in these “compromised times”?
In English. 30 min

Inside/outside eyes: Litó Walkey, Sophia New, Ania Nowak, Mateusz Szymanówka
Special thanks to: Eva Meyer-Keller, Julia Rodriguez, Sonia Fernandez Pan, Christian Hackenberger, Franziska Dieterich, Maque Pereyra, Alice Heyward, the audience

Zrinka Užbinec (HR): EXPLODED GOO
A monstrous dance, composed in real time, by a body-in-between. Inspired by collage and the idea of glitch, a challenge to our perceptions of a dancer’s body on stage
A kind warning: you will find a head looking at its own ass from afar, a big belly, a flashing pair of tiny eyes giving a dirty look, nails that don’t work anymore, a biting lip making an annoying sound, a dance performed for the imaginary cat, and a robot leg kicking. Zrinka Užbinec uses her dancing body to re-connect exploded particles into a new choreographic compound.
Performed without text. 50 min.
Concept, Performance: Zrinka Užbinec
Choreography, Stage, Light: Ida Daniel, Carlos Franke, Katarzyna Kania and Zrinka Užbinec
Sound: Aran Kleebaur
Outside eye: Caroline Creutzburg
