From the throat to the dawn
20th January 2023

A place emerges, holding us as a whole and at the same instant as many intimate, social and political fragments.
 An affective landscape envelops us in the skin of a futuristic fantasy awaiting a belated renaissance. 
A place where we are not just political concepts, but emotional landscapes, where the skin is as thick as a body itself and as fragile as the liminal space between chants. Where our bodies of rage – our transformative power, create substances of tears, sweat and voices to quench the earth’s thirst.

For this performance that unfolds deep into the night, Sorour Darabi draws on Trauma Bar und Kino and invites a number of artists to participate in an experiment of a wider group project in constant metamorphosis. As it was for Scheherazade, the night here becomes a space for resistance and the invention of stories becomes a survival matter. From the sunlight to moonlight the endless cycle is a negotiation between extremes. What takes us to the dawn?
