SLEEPING DYING DREAMING
This event occurred October 31 - November 1, 2015
Featuring: Christine Borch, J&K (Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard), Isabella Lewandowski, and Melissa Steckbauer
We warmly invite you to join us on a ceremographic journey, exploring intermediate states of sleeping, dying, and dreaming. We will perform rituals throughout the night, acting as guides to steer you through our version of Hades, transgressing worlds and exploring realms in-between sleep and wakefulness, between life and death, and between corporeal and ancestral planes. With this Halloween event in Bestensee we will continue work on a successful collaboration initiated at Teatr Studio in Warsaw, Poland in 2014, organized by the artist collective ƒƒ as part of the group show Temporary Autonomous Zone/3. SLEEPING DYING DREAMING in Bestensee begins late on "All Hallows´Eve,” October 31st and ends on the morning of "All Saint´s Day,” November 1st. Upon entering the house you will find a large communal bed, in which everyone can rest comfortably, sleep, and dream together. The act of falling asleep will be subtly guided by elements of text, sound, scent and touch; gently invoking a situation of surrender and comfort. During the night, extended periods of silence and non-activity will be intersected by sensual, visual, and performative actions. Facing the new morning light we will enjoy a communal breakfast together.
