Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit? Not quite the case, the political internet rather resembles a mirror cabinet, political porn, a lottery of arguments. It openly reveals German sensitivities and manifests impressions of current political dynamics as well as ways of expressing them. We admit, internil's performers love the extreme which is why the audience will have to play the middle-class: try and act all normal when surrounded by Reichsbürgern and anarchists, those new to the right-wing or the left-wing, anti-Germans and anti-imperialists, information warriors and "worried citizens". Think of the political www as a giant script which Glühende Landschaften attempts to stage in the radically abridged version.

In "Dr. Faustus" Emilio García Wehbi and Maricel Álvarez revive the medieval Faust myth and create a dialogue between the works of Goethe, Gertrude Stein, Lars von Trier and Marcel Duchamp.

Peeking through the obscene spyhole of "Étant Donnés", the combined materials from "Faust. The First Part of the Tragedy", "Dr. Faustus Lights the Lights" and "Antichrist" create a peculiar montage. Five dancers, an old man, the voice of a German actress speaking in English together with the light as a poetic persona provoke a clash of genres and a counterproposal against the classical story.

M.31 | K.62 | K.85 | Performance Hebbel am Ufer (HAU) Berlin
21. - 22.09. 2011

"M.31", "K.62" and "K.85" by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Ari Benjamin Meyers relate to three films.
"M.31" is a spooky musical pursuit based on Fritz Lang's 1931 film "M" and his haunting use of Edward Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King".
"K.62", inspired by Orson Welles' cinematic version of "Der Prozess" ("The Trial", 1962) is a musical crime film. The audience and an orchestra are equally involved as some magic and lots of Kafka.
In "K.85" each member of the audience experiences a solo performance in the style of the dark comedy of "missed connections", influenced by Martin Scorsese's film "After Hours", 1985.

Adam E. Mendelsohn (artist and critic in Brooklyn, New York): "’K.85’ was the type of theatre/ performance that keeps you guessing as to what’s happening and allows one to connect the dots and see its rigorous conceptual design a few days later." "K.62/K.85" was one of the highlights of Performa 2009 in New York.

"M.31" was newly devised especially for the city of Berlin and HAU.

Red Light for Dr. Faustus | Theatrical Installation | 28.01. 2010 Akademie der Künste. Pariser Platz. Black Box.


Photo: Maricel Álvarez

The theatrical installation "Red Light for Dr. Faustus" was devised by M.A. Dance Studies students at Free University Berlin during the winter semester 2009/10. It is based on the formal structure as well as the conceptual and tonal possibilities of Gertrude Stein's libretto "Dr. Faustus Lights the Lights" (1938).

The Argentinean artists and guest professors Maricel Álvarez and Emilio García Wehbi present the work-in-progress of their joint artistic and academic efforts with the text in relation to the collective, the architecture of the space and the material of the libretto.

With Angela Alves, Elena Basteri, Olga Bogorodskaya, Mariama Diagne, Elke Espert, Katharina Haverich, Maritta Horwath, Julia Pohlisch and Eva Siegel

A cooperation between Free University, Akademie der Künste and German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The Wedding | Site-Specific Performance | England 2004


Photo: Lyndsay Evans

A wedding ceremony of two females who are in love. It a small, intimate occasion.
There is no one in the Glass House but the person in charge of the exhibition. There are flower petals on the floor but mainly around the edges of the Glass House near the window. There are white tea lights near the window, too. (There are a few extra lights positioned to illuminate the window area.)
Vicki comes in, she lights the candles and checks the space. (She turns on the lights), which takes approximately five minutes. During these five minutes, all audience members find their positions. (Make sure this is arranged). Vicki has left the space and meets the vicar on the ramp, they converse briefly. She goes to the end of the ramp and waits. The vicar enters and looks around, checks his speech, perhaps talks to the exhibition man for about 3 minutes. He takes his place behind a lectern as the musician enters and sets up. The photographer and then after a couple of minutes the wedding guests see Vicki, and ask for instructions as to where they are placed. They take their positions accordingly within two minutes.
The two brides arrive.
