«perser review» installation
the acoustics of the recordings in three different spaces activate the acoustics of the actual hall; visual documentes dissect the original performative processes by deconstructed constellations rearranged in the new space. the theatrical process is transformed into an installation, creating a void (by lack of performers) to sharpen the eye for different perceptions.

«perser review» performance
performers - protagonists and chorus members - enter into a dialogue with the chorus of loudspeakers, reconstruct choreographies of the respective stagings, create overlaps of live construction, loudspeaker composition, reconstruction, fragmentation and documents. each day, different passages of the text are reworked by different performers and constellations. the sediments of experiences during the working process and the representations are cross read with visual and acoustical documents. leaps of time and media (between live performance and document) initiate experimental dialogues.
