Travelling to the four Corners of the Earth

Performance by Miriam Jakob
In the frame of Open Spaces #2-2014

On their journey across the arid stage Miriam Jakob, Maija Karhunen, and Nir Vidan are negotiating leadership, claim and visibility in silent brutality. This creates a humoristic intimate theatre of possibilities about impulse and reaction, magic and technology, all around a picnic blanket.

Concept, choreography: Miriam Jakob | Performance: Miriam Jakob, Maija Karhunen, Nir Vidan | Sound: Felix Classen | Dramaturgy advisor: Antonia Baehr, Ana Laura Lozza, Heike Albrecht. A production by Miriam Jakob supprted by Senatskanzlei für kulturelle Angelegenheiten der Stadt Berlin, Fonds Darstellende Künste e.V., PACT Zollverein, Tanztendenz München e.V. and Tanzfabrik Berlin.
