The production is part of the newcomer's platform Introducing... of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival 2023.
How can an archive be brought to life? Can it become a hole in time through which we can enter a new future? Salma Said and Miriam Coretta Schulte get to the bottom of these questions in a futuristic video world. Between video projections and car tires, the two playfully explore the subversive video archive 858 of the Egyptian revolution of 2011 as well as the potential of choreographic techniques for remembering. Accompanied by videos made by the artist Jasmina Metwaly and the sound of the musician Leila Moon, they travel through times and spaces with the audience. In addition, a local guest is invited each evening to present their own archive of memories.
The performance will include primarily English spoken language as well as individual sentences in German and Arabic spoken language.
