sonic performance art for a couple

by Katharina Haverich and Christopher Hotti Böhm

Programming: Holger Heißmeyer

"he wolf / she man"

teaser-trailer


 

“he wolf / she man'' is an intimate sonic performance art piece for a couple. Through a chain of technical-alchemistic bodily procedures, a couple modifies each other's appearance. Femininity and masculinity make place for a range of techno-fetishistic gender images. For years, Haverich and Böhm have been using this evolving piece to explore current post-romantic terrains. Fragility, antagonism, intimacy, care and functional brutality come together in this psychogeography of human desires and anxieties between two individuals.

 "...an experiment inside of an experiment which touches on the need for - and fear of - human transformation. The work is visually, aurally, and atmospherically stunning and continually surprising, simultaneously poetic and disturbing, engaging in every way."

- Brina Stinehelfer, Artistic Director of the Ehemaliges Stummfilm Kino Delphi (Berlin)

 

Entlang einer Kette gegenseitiger Transformationen – Behandlungen, Bearbeitungen, Zurichtungen – entfaltet "He Wolf / She Man" eine Psychogeographie körperlicher Paarbeziehungen und techno-fetischistischer Geschlechterbilder. Im Keller einer ehemaligen Schlachterei in Berlin-Neukölln arbeiten reales Ambiente und Installation luzide zusammen, die Handlungen alternierend zwischen dem mit Untersuchungsinstrumenten und -objekten angereicherten Raum von Katharina Haverich und dem technisch-alchimistischen Produktionslabor von Christopher Böhm. Wo in jenem sich gleich zu Beginn funktionslos gewordene Leuchtstoffröhren unter den High Heels früherer Weiblichkeit in den klang splitternder Glasknochen verwandeln, lässt sich in diesem der Verwandlung von Klangelementen postmaskuliner Gleichschaltungsmusik technoiden Untergrunds in flüssige Form beiwohnen. Zerbrechlichkeit, Sorgfalt, Miteinander, Gegeneinander und funktionale Brutalität wohnen hier dicht an dicht, ohne sich gegenseitig zu stören, und fließen zwischen den beiden Performenden hin und her.

Arne Vogelgesang, director and performer, internil (Berlin)

"...the performance opens up exiting, never tangible fields of tension between the performers, the domestic environment, medical sterility and audio-technological elements. The audience is free to walk through this experiential space, in which the performers manage to keep impressively calm and present [...].

- Steffi Kowalski, Artistic Director of Space/Time Berlin for Video and Performance Art (Berlin) 

  "...an immersive experience that raises questions about identity,

human relationships, evolution and artistic processes."

- Elena Azzadin, Director of the Residency Programm at AADK (Spain)
