Computer avatars in conversation.
After interviewing witnesses and heirs of a life in the GDR, the installation presents the audience with bodies of computer-generated avatars. In an intimate setting, they report from their biographies while at the same time denying nostalgic views on individual fates. The stories as a whole draw a fragmentary and broad picture of identity: knowledge and memory unfold in all their (dis)continuities - complex, diverse and full of points of contact.
CAROLINE CREUTZBURG, born in Berlin, studied at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen. Since 2009 she has been initiating her own stage projects, with which she pursues her interest in both strong and permeable frameworks. She is guided by the questions of implicit forms of addressing, self-determined subjectivity, the supposedly banal and the values of entertainment.
