The video piece Tea Dance invites audience members to set off on a journey of discovery in an apartment and encounter objects differently. Brooms, spoons, crumbs, rags, chairs and whatever else can be found will be brought into motion. Once everything is really moving, the attention will be focused on everything that normally disappears in everyday life. The dance of the tealeaves or the wild uprising of the chair cushions, an electric kettle in ecstasy and the tender rattling of the lids – the dance tea becomes the Tea Dance!
Following the virtual performance, the get-to-know format "Singles & Theater Lovers: The Art of Seduction" by Theaterscoutings Berlin offers singles in particular the opportunity to have have an encounter with (previously) unknown audience members and to informally exchange ideas about the topics of the performance. A format by and with Katharina von Wilcke.

Eva Meyer-Keller, Sara Wendt & weitere Gäste
Eva Meyer-Keller uses everyday objects from her immediate and closest surroundings, things she finds at home or in the supermarket. This choreographed tinkering unfolds an obsessive domestic aesthetic. Meyer-Keller's working method, in the various constellations of her collaborative projects, always remains characterized by a constructive disregard for the genre boundaries between visual and performing arts. She lives and works in Berlin.
In her practice as a costume and set designer, Sara Wendt prefers to work with things that have already been produced, which she tracks down, modifies and combines on targeted forays. The playful handling of functions and shifts in function are her focus. She has a special interest in the field of performance in objects, images, self-producing bodies. She lives and works in Berlin.
