Marc Philipp Gabriel:
Who's Ajima? Exhibited on a platform on eye level, the figure takes us on a performative rollercoaster ride between quiet moments and visual fireworks, partly funny, partly hyper, from yoga to disco, from Beethoven to Queer Electro Rave, with exuberant light effects and no shyness for pathos. In crazy episodes Ajima questions expectations and attributions: What and who do we want to see on stage? A solo piece that stands up for an open community.
