Scattered Space

How many realities do we inhabit when we are performing? What holds the performance space-time together? Where does it split?

The penultimate episode of "Her Face" continues the multi-layered polythematic thread of the series. In their instant composition duet, dancer, choreographer and performer Valentina Bordenave and musician Thomas Mayer explore the universal diasporic experience of exile, historical fragmentation and projections of longing for lost wholeness.

Born in Argentina in 1968, for Valentina flight, persecution, emigration are deeply inscribed in the genealogy of her family. The work of Valentina and Tom is a reflection of possible liberties: Being politicly and artistically catapulted out of the familiar world of rules or commonplaces, new individual approaches and vocabularies come together to weave new dialogues. With their bodies, voices and instruments, both artists start at the edge of their imagination, ready to penetrate it, to explore it. Reconstruction of a hypothetical universe.

Once again, the poems „Niemandsrose/Psalm" by Paul Celan and texts by Susanne Gösse become the articulated pieces of the performance. All of them poetic "Gesänge" about the presence of all those who have left us, whose faces, though lost, shimmer again in poetic fragments. In Valentina's Berlin flat, she and Tom welcome the audience. The impulses have an effect on the spectator, who travels on a virtual timeline through his or her own individual spaces. The fractal movement patterns open up multiverse spaces that now form the echo chambers for sounds, electric guitar music, multilingual text surfaces.
