in·ter is an ongoing cooperation project between DIE KOMPANIE and performers from Berlin, Antananarivo and Novosibirsk during the time of the Corona pandemic. The performers engage with this time as an in-between space: between time out and transition time, between isolation and virtual proximity, between anxiety and pause. Spatial separation of the performers is suspended by digital interaction of images and experiences, connections are drawn anew.
“My performance is about two states during rest, because the body is weak at rest and is facing different states of mind. So, I tried to personify the feeling of peace and insecurity at the same time.” [Nazaria Tooj, Antananarivo]
“I think that is also connected with the question of time. Time a week ago was a luxury, having time for the things you want to do was a luxury. Now I have time for the things I don’t have time for.” [Marwa Almokbel, Berlin]
The prefix re- expresses in formations with verbs that something is reversed, returned to the initial state, or caused anew. This video collage does none of those. It connects intention with memory, interior with public space, moving bodies with transitory light.
DIE KOMPANIE is a participatory performance project founded in 2017. DIE KOMPANIE defines itself as a social and artistic living body. We promote individual emancipation through art and intervention in society. We believe in the possibility of participation and artistic expression of every human being. Our work is collective and interdisciplinary. For us, art is an attitude through which every aspect of live can be considered. DIE KOMPANIE intervenes in public space questioning the borders between art and everyday life, public and private, individual and collective.
