"This is what I miss: not something that's gone, but something that will never happen. Two old women giggling over their tea."
Margaret Atwood in Cat's Eye
Aerial artist Jana Korb transforms Margaret Atwood’s novel "The Cat's Eye" into a solo-performance. Not only does she defeat gravity with her aerial theater, she also lures the audience into different levels of their imagination - multidimensional physical theater on all levels.
Kirsten Burger - Director
Director Kirsten Burger has been working in the fields of fine arts, site specific, classical street theater, and moving theater, and has created many productions in public space. She loves direct contact with passers by, surprise, and random moments. She wants to open the perception of her audience, wants to confront them with societal borders.
We place our piece between circus arts and theater, between dance and performance, street theater and musical theater - searching for interdisciplinarity. We are interested in the in-between, methodically, and with our narrative - the space between best friends.
Our co-operation between director and performer began with biographical research: two women, their experiences, motiovations, and memories - situated in the process, creating a dramaturgy. Our conversations, the stories between us, and literature are the base for our research.
Jennie Zimmermann - Music, Voice
The voice and counterpart of our protagonist has been provided by musician, singer, and dancer Jennie Zimmermann. Together we produced a sound track / audio track for our piece.
Jennie is interested in weaving sounds, noise, and text into soundscapes - integrating phisiological processes, emotions, intuition, and instincts into her music. Her voice is free to roam for artistic research.
Working with loops, and manipulating her voice, she combines the colors of sound, words, structures, rythms, repetition, and fragments.
Die Texte werden ausschließlich Atwoods Roman entnommen und musikalisch für unsere Produktionen aufgearbeitet. Ebenso arbeiten wir mit Wiederholungen, Rhytmus, Tempo, um Stimmungen für das Spiel zu schaffen.
Wir verwenden die englische Original Roman-Vorlage.
