After Show Party
Friday, 17.11.23
Katapult, Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin
Clara Cortés und Moritz Grenz: Hedonia
Eight by two meters of green artificial turf, behind it a landscape stretches out on a large canvas. Two people lie in the grass: "It's a perfect day." Yoga on the grass, the smell of the forest, a bird emerging from a hologram. Two bodies balancing and floating, techno, sexuality, the dog upside down and the happy cat. A futuristic rap concert, a dystopia, a rift, cold and pleasure, cables, wireless connections, microphones and cameras. "Hedonia" is an interdisciplinary circus performance that combines contemporary circus, digital media, video art, rap, text and sound design to create a multi-sensory experience. In the tension between plastic nature, real feelings and pixel tears, the performers* embark on a critical investigation of our technology-mediated reality and its profound impact on our lives.

After that we continue with an After Show Party!
