The children Charlotte and Felix emerge from the sea and play as their dead parents on the beach. It's a ritual the two have been practicing for years. In memory of their parents' wild exuberance, they put sunscreen on their backs and tickle each other until they can hardly breathe. For brief moments,all sadness falls away from them. Again and again, however, the different needs of the two ten- and eleven-year-old siblings break into the game.

2019 February 14 15 16 17 | 19.30
Festsaal

Temporary Store searches for the choreographic interface between virtual and physical reality: timeless advertising spots flicker on the walls of a futuristic transit location that could be anything from a pop-up store to a museum. Post-human bodies move to spherical music, are rewound and fed back like robots. As archives, they travel through digital time and space and run through movement patterns that are familiar to us yet alien. A virtuoso endless loop.
