dialogue on difference is a performance about ideological ghosts that permeate our present in times of radical shifts in political discourse and in the language.
claudia bosse and abdalla daif perform, speak, discuss, sing, move, comment, confront each other in different media constellations. they become subject and object of their joint research, they are performers, witnesses and archives of their cultural practice. preliminary research in egypt and austria form the basis of this work. from different perspectives, the german director and choreographer and the egyptian performance artist and producer are questioning events of the present, their own living environment and that of the other.
dialogue on difference is embedded in a sound- and spatial dramaturgy and consists of assemblages, objects, dialogues and movements, projections and compositions in a multi-channel setting by composer günther auer. along a score with 7 chapters the performance creates different situations in space within the spectators.
dialogue on difference by and with claudia bosse and abdalla daif is a performative dialogue in englisch, arab and german about the construction of gender, ideologies and subjectivities in different realities and different geopolitical environments.
