Under the Bridge = On the threshold / Saturday
The starting point for the festival is the location itself: the gallery, located under the Wildenbruch Bridge, has always been at the same time a threshold space, a place of “in-between”.
SATURDAY / August 20, 2022
Transit-Theater-Berlin: Wenn ich ein Vöglein wär (Theater Lambe Lambe)
Passersby can interact with a large songbird or watch a short play inside.
Diren Demir: Speak to the Water
Diren Demir recites fragments from his dream diaries to the water. An honest disclosure of the subconscious.
Viviana Medina: Three Days and Three Nights
An interactive performance that deals with Sandra dos Santos’ escape and immigration. Like Jonah in the whale, she has herself shipped via DHL as a bolt in a wooden box.
David, Minq, Mahtab, Trang, Aduni, Adelle, Dylan:
Instant Compositions – A jam session otherwise
Curated by Sailesh, Mel, Jessica/Zïada
We invite you to a two-hour musical expression of queer grief and joy, connectedness through immediate and collective composition. Meditation, electronics and improvisation in the middle of the threshold. Feel the vibe, live in the moment, and embrace the chaos.
For this format, six queer BIPoC artists come together for the first time in a somatic movement workshop led by MINQ. Come witness and join in the fun. After a one-hour sound improvisation, we invite queer and BIPoC musicians, artists and performers to join the session with instruments, poems, dance and sound to participate in the second hour of instant composition.
— Installations for the entire duration of the festival —
Elli Ott: ij
A water sculpture that creates a poetic play between sameness and difference on the subtle levels of movement and animation, permeability, delineation, and reflection.
Marcelina Wellmer: Porous
In “Porous” the city merges with nature and remnants of technology. The installation tells of the ambivalent and tense relationship between man, city and nature.
Berni Puig: Pintura Interior
During the festival, the artist creates a mural in which he uses simple geometric shapes to externalize the peculiarity and history of the building.
