Inspired by the concept of a series of films by Sabeth Buchmann and Constanze Ruhm called "Testing Rehearsals" (Mumok, Vienna 2013) the practice of rehearsal is focused. As a "bio-politically charged modell situation" it has the potential to bring the practice of social roles to the surface. Their realisation takes place in relation to foils of economic, cultural, and political power relations - with all these social spheres being proverbially embodied. In context of the live performance the rehearsal mode can be used to locate further power structures. For example it can be shown how the practice of counting prescribes external time structure on the body while at the same time overriding body´s "natural" pace.
