Frauke Havemann / On Air
In the frame of 9. Tanznacht Berlin 2016
An absurdist melding of genres, moving between choreography, performance, film and radio play: a projection surface, a performer, a video and sound editor. The script is based upon films from the sci-fi horror genre, like “Alien” by Dan O’Bannon. The horror begins with the fear of the uncontrollable Other, which invades our territory, attacking and transforming our bodies. But how do we confront the threat? Who or what should we go after … or destroy?
