In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

Bang Bang Bodies embarks on a choreographic journey into the collective imaginary. What brings bodies together? Where can the experience of togetherness be situated? The work uses headbanging – common in the metal and punk scenes, rituals, and protests – as an endless chain of reciprocity of space and time, sweat and breath, but also historical, cultural and political particles between bodies.

Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.
