We are a three-member, Chilean-German performance collective that takes on the encounters, boundaries and coincidences of life and thus illuminates questions on humanity and cultural identity. The group largely works with the means of post-dramatic theater and builds on scenically staged and biographical elements, works site-specific and interactively with the audience and draws its aesthetics from the interdisciplinary.
In collaboration with other artists we develop, write and produce progressive performance pieces that operate at the interface of fiction and reality, as well as structure and improvisation. We use our sense of humor, our understanding of memory and our approach to straightforward expression, to invite the audience to reflect on our magical, minimal and quite witty humanness. We regard the performative moment as a timeless space in which collisions, discoveries and transformations take place.
