She She Pop- “Schubladen”

She She Pop is a Berlin based performance group, formed mainly by female members: Sebastian Bark, Johanna Freiburg, Fanni Halmburger, Lisa Lucassen, Mieke Matzke, Ilia Papatheodorou and Berit Stumpf .

“Schubladen” – is a meeting between former East and West german female residents, confrontating each other, their lives, their education and the society they were brought up. Biographical elements are inserted in the collective history of the last 40 years.

“Schubladen” is a performative encounter of different destinies, all being presented, compared and opposed on stage. There is no good or bad, no right or wrong. Events are regarded with humour and intelligence.

The show is structured as a repetition of confrontations. Sitting face to face, two by two, the 6 participants explore their pasts and bring a personal interpretation to the known historical facts, a catwalk of imagined and reimagined clichés that people have about each other. The conclusion: creating a dialog between opposite sites. Does it work? Can we change who we are if we cannot change the past? Is the past totally defining our lives? The question is to be answered by our personal choises.

“Time has fallen asleep in the afternoon sunshine”

The Royal Library of Belgium has hosted the utopia described by Ray Bradbury in Fahrenheit 451. In a future far far away all the books are burnt and the only way to support knowledge is by becoming yourself a book. So why not try it out before the disappearance of books?! Following Mette Edvardson’s concept, a group of artists from all over the world, have started to learn books by hard and to become the book they love. There are already 30 live books(in German, English, Spanish, Arabic, Norwegian, Greek, Dutch), one of them I met this year in Brussels.

He was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. He took me somewhere in one of the library’s archive and started talking. It was a weird feeling, the book was not an object anymore but a person. The book was embodied by this middle aged man who had no biography for me. He became the story; without trying to add extra feelings to what he was saying or to set a scenery or to make it theatrical. No, it was just the two of us and the story, and the words, the language, the texture of fiction.
