INFANTEN is a physical as well as a vocal search of a path back to the sensory spectrum of the infant/the universe of infants' experience.
The performance premiered at zeitraumexit Mannheim (DE) in November 2013, followed by performances at Het Veem Theater Amsterdam (NL) and Dampfzentrale Bern (CH).
In collaboration with the performers Dwayne Toemere and Hilde Labadie, Jolika Sudermann started the research on this project in 2012. In a crèche, they observed 1 to 3-year-olds. What they could see and hear there serves as a guideline for their "return trip". Letting go of all physical obstacles on the way of recovering infant motorics, the performers are also confronted with the complexity of letting go of mental obstructions like consciousness, self-censorship and knowledge.
