Programme

Houseclub präsentiert: Pink Valley

Radical Present

By and with seven young people
Part of “Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2021”

Performance

German with English surtitles / 

Auf einer Straße brennt ein Feuer. Davor oder dahinter jubelt eine Gruppe junger Menschen.

Together with the performance collective Pink Valley, seven young actors have spent eight months researching their radical presence. The result, “Radical Present”, is a performative experiment, a search for presence in radical times, a sensuality without conditions, a liberation from tomorrow and yesterday, from the must and the should - but is it possible to keep performance alive in isolation? Probably yes and no. Our boundaries are forced and simultaneously blown up, we no longer know what is normal or what is real. It‘s about our relationships - to the world, to others and to ourselves. Radical presence despite radical absence. Switch on to our live online performance!
