zero point (Meg Stuart, Descha Daemgen & Abraham Hurtado)

Trajectories for a Landscape


English /  approx. 180 mins.

“zero point” is an experimental performance space founded by Meg Stuart, Descha Daemgen, and Abraham Hurtado. Since the beginning of 2022 it has hosted experimental artistic gatherings in its Kreuzberg studio. For three days in November “zero point” will inhabit a labyrinth of rooms and hallways at HAU3, allowing sonic and cinematic landscapes to evolve and expand through its spaces and momentary communities to be built through collective acts of sharing. Audiences will be welcomed into a dreamlike fugue that decomposes and recomposes, incidental sounds will spiral into collective choirs, and topographies longed for, haunted, and imagined will shape energetic architectures. Through concerts, discussions, meditative practices, and manifestations of alternative futures, audience and invited artists will trace out a shared trajectory in the search for new formats of collective action and encounter.
