The language of our senses gives us the form in which we cast our perception of reality. Everything is finely tuned to each other. So that we can make contact with this reality without much thought. But who am I and what remains of me when this precisely synchronised orchestra, this habitual interplay of the senses, is disturbed? When perception changes - and I am powerless over it. Is the world we can see, hear, feel, taste and smell so naturally reality? Or is there another reality that goes beyond our senses?
Between coming of age and horror trip, enhanced with text fragments by Heinrich Heine, Rainer Maria Rilke and Lewis Carroll, the duo Athina Lange and Pawel Aderhold develop a performance in spoken and sign language that illuminates a special way of being between the senses. While whatremainsofme is reminiscent of an illustrated psychosis à la Sarah Kane, the piece poses questions about our "normal" form of existence anew - and sharpens the view for a different kind of reality.
The piece lasts about 45-60 minutes. It is very visual and uses German Sign Language (DGS), German spoken language and partly subtitles. The piece is suitable for both audiences with and without knowledge of German Sign Language. Intense light effects as well as stroboscope will be used. Presumably, the performance uses a lot of heavy bass sounds and vibrations as well as tinnitus-like sounds. Hearing protection is provided at the entrance. The piece is suitable for audiences from 14 years and older. The audience area on the grandstand is seated. There are two wheelchair spaces and one beanbag seat that can be reserved by phone or booked via the online ticket shop or at the box office, if available. Admission begins 20-30 minutes prior to show time. We recommend arriving early to select a suitable seat. Please note that the accessibility information is subject to possible changes. It will be updated continuously. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Gina Jeske at firstname.lastname@example.org or 030 27 89 00 35.
