Aeon (II)

Live Installation by Moritz Majce, Sandra Man

Aeon is the time of the planet, geological transformations take eons. They exceed the presence of the humans, they embed them into the long duration of the landscape.
In two parts, the artist and writer Sandra Man and the artist and choreographer Moritz Majce, each of them together with three dancers, invite you to meet in the urban nature of a wasteland in Berlin Lichtenberg.
Located next to the six lane Landsberger Allee, surrounded by apartment blocks and shopping malls, you will find a place opening itself up to silence, vastness and to the future.

Part I
Sandra Man: The Reunion

05.08. + 06.08.21 
In a live installation of two texts, dedicated to The Swamp and The Street, Lisa Densem and Joséphine Evrard let themselves be moved by the real landscape and by imaginary ones. Delving into the deep times of the earth, we will come together elsewhere.
PLEASE NOTE: This part was originally performed by three dancers, including Laura Siegmund. This time, Laura cannot take part.

Part II
Moritz Majce: The Clearing

09.08. – 12.08.21
Together with Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos, Samuel Draper, Mikael Marklund, Moritz Majce will present The Clearing. Every evening doors open from 19:00-20:00.
One year ago, after the first lockdown, Moritz Majce started to work intensely on Relational Flow, a movement practice that aims to create a living space in-between bodies. Letting themselves be moved by each other, the dancers take the distance between their bodies as source and material; they constantly feel where the others are and allow this sensation to move them. 
From the beginning, Relational Flow, has been a practice not only among the dancers who are rather activating than performing it, but it includes also the visitors. Understood as sensing bodies rather than as watching spectators, the moving space is flowing through the audience and is happening around them, crossing and enveloping them.
Relational Flow is an ongoing practice research that fully unfolds itself only in the presence of visitors. In the frame of Aeon II the part named „The Clearing“ is dedicated to the experience of Relational Flow. Inviting every body into the flow of presence it creates a sensation of being together even when we are apart from each other. Taking place on the vast wasteland on Landsberger Allee, „The Clearing“ is opening up the space in-between us humans within the landscape.

Moritz Majce

Moritz Majce works on special audience spaces: new forms of encounter between the work
 and the observer. His means are space-forming objects, videos,
and choreographies for performers.

Sandra Man

Sandra Man works on spatializing texts: embodied in choreographies and performances, with sound added in videos, or spoken in audio installations. 

In 2015, Majce and Man started cooperating on creating spatial choreographies – mobile surroundings consisting of the equal elements: performers, objects, video images, texts, and visitors.
