I take a deep breath was part of The Urge to... performance evening in August 2019 in Berlin. As this is the 3rd of 6 solos, I allowed myself to present my bodymind with a simple, genuine score. I invited the audience to look at me, to look at my body, while I revisit and remember memories of my younger self. Listening to a song, I witnessed repressed memories, both beautiful and painful, observing my physical reactions. Can I listen to my emotional, spiritual and physical reactions and am I able to express the chaotic stored sensations? What does my body remember, 20 years after I first encountered that song?
The solo series Matter emerged out of a desperately wish to be with you and my body. To accept all failure and disappointment and to literally reclaim the power, beauty, anger, lust, frustration and joy that is all in within me, within my bodily self.
