100 Advertisements

100 Advertisements is an ongoing project where I create advertisements for imaginary products or services that might “improve my life” (and yours!), during the coronavirus pandemic. The project started in March 2020, when Germany entered its first lockdown. Some advertisements are wishes for a better world; others are unfunny jokes from the darkest part of my soul! Together, they are my corona-diary, a personal documentation of these times from the perspective of an international student in Germany.

A cooperation of Eng Kai Er with MA Choreography and Performance, within the frame of Hessian Theatre Academy

LOSE COMBO feat. Sonar Quartett After having to be postponed twice, the materials of LOSE COMBO’s most recent work has been stowed into digital containers. Some of which are now accessible on the web: as ATLAS' WIRBEL | CONTAINER. In April, the Reinbeckhallen in Oberschöneweide became a performative laboratory for LOSE COMBO’s cartographic experiment. Together with Sonar Quartett countless mythological, literary, etymological, anatomical and geographical entanglements of Atlas were explored. In their lectures, Claudia Splitt and Florian Feigl tell of remote volcanic islands and rare birds, of Greek gods, ancient historians and postmodern encyclopedias, referring to anecdotes and geographical descriptions. While the musicians of Sonar Quartett navigate through Jörg Laue's cartographic composition STRICH, based on the first Portolan map, the so-called Carta Pisana. The CONTAINER version of ATLAS’ WIRBEL invites its audience to browse through 9 to 17 minute sequences of materials and remixes that accentuate different aspects of the work. Insights to scores and text materials, video excerpts and tape recordings, as well as stagings of concerts and text performances. Instead of (or rather: bridging the gap to) a life performance, ATLAS' WIRBEL | CONTAINER will be unveiled on June 14th, 2021.

ask me twice

The Ensemble S201 and artist Kanade Hamawaki are going to present a film "frag mich 2 mal"(ask me twice) and bring art and new music out of their closed contexts: critical discussions with everyday life collide with balloon performances and screeching woodwinds. The question of the relationship between one's own and other worlds is posed and encouraged to speculate about life and death.

Aus dem Innenleben eines Staubsaugerbeutels

Dust: work or aesthetics? Dust is everywhere, autonomous – as gray dust mice or in smallest particles – it floats through our lives. As the color of all colors, it reveals itself to be a medium, material or disturbance – and fills vacuum cleaner bag after vacuum cleaner bag.

äöü take a closer look at the "Black Box" brand and dissect this dirty, grey and small-scale archive of our everyday lives. A search for the beauty of dust, for form and content, life and death, wage labor and gender, magic and engineering.

Dust: an operetta, a vacuum cleaner concert, explosions of light.

Body Boom Boom Brain (Vol. II) - no one escapes p*b*rt*y

During the Corona pandemic, something strange is happening in a theatre somewhere in Germany: the empty auditorium is hitting puberty. In their short thriller “Body Boom Boom Brain”, PINSKER+BERNHARDT invite (indeed!) everyone over the age of 12 to explore fucking p*b*rt*y as the ultimate brain-body-killer of all human conditions. The theatre becomes a physical laboratory, in which growing pimples and pubic hair take over, while the staff tries to get to the bottom of this absurd spectacle. Digitaler Mousonturm

Cotton flowers exist / Baumwoll blumen gibt es

The choreographic piece Cotton flowers exist brings into dialogue the actual with the virtual and connects the materiality of the world with the capacity to imagine and create non existing landscapes. More precisely it is an attempt to explore what connects the practice of drawing, choreographing and walking. It brings into conversation three different forms of writing in three different scales: the writing on the surface of a notebook by drawing, on the floor of a stage by choreographing/dancing and what it is written on bodies while walking/strolling outdoors. My intention is to bring into light these highly idiosyncratic inner landscapes that have been inscribed into drawings and translate them into artificial landscapes/room installations. Using my drawings as scores I tried to translate the two dimensional images into moving images. The relation of the body to the cotton was the main agency that made possible the embodiment of the drawings. In the choreographic work Cotton Flowers exist, cotton is used as a material whose aesthetic value becomes the experience of the performance. But actually cotton is a symbol with economic and social connotations. It is a material that signals class and race. It is a symbol of struggle. Therefore,bringing into the performance the social, economic and political context of the cotton production in order to avoid the hyper – aesthetization of cotton was an imperative ethical responsibility. In October 2020, I visited northern Greece where the cultivation of cotton is very common and together with the film maker Artemis Anastasiadou, we interviewed and filmed the cotton producers of the neighbourhood I grew up. The focus of this research was to give voice to the cotton producers of three different generations reflecting on the socio – economic and political conditions of their micro society.

Dancer in the Dark

„In the dark times of neoliberalism and rising neofascism – what else is there left (to dance)?“

„Dancer In The Dark“ is a second performance of trilogy „swan song dances“, first part „TEKHNE“ premiered at „Baltoscandal“ festival 2020. „Dancer In the Dark“ is a performance which weaves together text and dance and storytellingdance&dancestorytelling. Its a performance series which oscillates between deeply personal, mythical and political. If the banal and the daily can no longer (where they ever?) be left outside of the rehearsel stage (maybe now more than ever?) – choreographer askes herself what is she willing to „stage“ at these troubling times. Is she even willing to „stage“ anything anymore? Lets see.
Or maybe not.

Daydreaming the Archive

The guests are taken through an affective cartography of the city, woven between a lost and a regained sense of orientation: from someone’s narrative of childhood memories of war in Bosnia in a Frankfurt doll clinic to the conjuring of someone else’s Buenos Aires through opera singing in the streets of Bornheim, from redoing, at Frankfurt’s main cemetery, the steps walked many times in different latitudes to soundscapes that speak of lost, failed or awaited photographs from family and city archives.


Daydreaming the Archive is an (im)possible collaboration of a group of artists and post_migrants, who fail to meet as one group because of the pandemic and working conditions. Walking through the city they inquire into daydreaming as place-making in an urban space, how dislocated memories yield other ways of inhabiting the city, and how post_migrants become travelers in their own city.

It's possible to start at either Bornheim U Höhenstraße (only at 15:00) or at Hauptfriedhof (at 15:00 and 16:00).

Duration: Approx. 2h30

deep net fake hole dark rabbit

deep net fake hole dark rabbit is a lo-fi-archeology of being-online, addressing the internet as a space of orientation and of missing out, of connection and exclusion. Reconstructing her browser history, Caroline Creutzburg searches for gaps in order to retrospectively write herself into the biography of the www. Wrestling with user-generated online culture and big tech’s teflon-capitalism, the work aims for a protest beyond dystopian mainstream-platitudes.

The performance will be in German.

DER WAGEN. Ein Theater- Roadmovie durch Deutschland

In summer 2019, the theater ensemble buehnendautenheims undertakes an unlikely tour through Germany. It travels as a hiking troupe, with a 100-year-old hay wagon stage across the country - from Dautenheim in Rhenish Hesse to Berlin. In their luggage they carry the stage play "The Great Theater of the World" by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Every day, the ensemble covers 40 kilometers; every evening, they perform in marketplaces, outdoor swimming pools, and in front of churches and castles. 
The experiences of their journey are now transformed into a documentary theatrical Roadmovie. "DER WAGEN" offers an unusual glance at Germany, from the countryside to the city, from West to East, through the centuries.

With their specially built cinema bus, the buehnendautenheims repeat their journey from August 14 - 22, 2021. Along the itinerary of their baroque theater tour, they will once again stop at nine selected stations and show the experiences condensed into 90 minutes. 
Each stop will also be shown in the film. 
Popcorn and cold drinks will be available at the cinema store.

Was ist Begegnung? Wie erblicke ich jemanden, ohne meine Vorstellung voranzustellen? Haben mehrere Personen Platz auf einer Bildfläche und kann gesehen werden auch sehen heißen - oder braucht es außer der Sicht auch die körperliche Annäherung, das Fühlen eines anderen Körpers, um eine gemeinsame Präsenz zu spüren?
D-escounder ist eine meditative Praxis, bei der das gemeinsam-solistische Zeichnen zur Möglichkeit wird, sich im digitalen Raum physisch zu begegnen. Mit besonderer Sensibilisierung für Klang, Eigen- und Fremdimpulse und (A-)Synchronitäten, werden die Zeichnungen zu einer gemeinsamen Erfahrung angeleitet.
In Sessions von ca. 90 Minuten zeichnen die Teilnehmer:innen die Situation, die Personen und die Eindrücke, die in der jeweiligen Zoom-Konferenz zusammenkommen

DISKURS is a festival at the interface between art and theory. Since 1984 it has been organized annually or biennially at the Institute for Applied Theater Studies in Gießen.


DISKURS35 will take place from 11. – 17. 10. 2021 and invites regional and international art and theory makers, students and interested people to come together, see, show, discuss and ask questions during these seven days.

We confront the ongoing pandemic situation with the greatest possible permeability. Since the beginning of this crisis, the cultural scene has been riddled, conditioned, shaken and inspired by porosity. Therefore, this year we invite artistic, theoretical and conceptual positions that provide approaches to address the motto porous.

The diverse program of performances, installations, lectures and workshops will take place in hybrid form, both analog and digital, and invites citizens, students, art and culture professionals and researchers to exchange and discuss.


Let's Celebrate the Porous! Let's Stay Porous!


Martin Müller, Greta Katharina Klein, Jannika Lösche, Kathrin Frech, Daniel Cordova, Leena Schnack, Paula Elena Noack, Nastya Dzyuban




DISKURS35 issupported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, the Gießen Cultural Office, the Justus Liebig University Gießen, the AStA JLU Gießen, the Gießen University Society, the Gießener Hochschulgesellschaft and the Hessian Theater Academy.

echoes of you(s)

echoes of you(s) is a collective drift, a temporary dislocation of the subject. It moves inside multi-layered temporalities and durations, leaking away from the present moment to unfold in the imagination of the viewer. Patterns erode away, leaving tenuous traces; they make tunnels across time (I think I’m adrift inside them). In echoes of you(s) Gry Tingskog and Amina Szecsödy weave together sculpture, embroidery, dance, sound and technology. In this meeting of choreography, performance and installation, they explore what happens to our bodies in the dark.
