Influenced by important representatives of physical theater (Meyerhold,
Artaud, Grotowski, Barba, Le Coq) I conceive a theater that will develop a
global, boundless, artistic language - just as music, painting or dance.
I am striving for a new - not necessarily verbal - stage language, which
appeals not only to the intellect, but to all the senses.
For this purpose I work interdisciplinary with two highly visual art forms:
physical theater and performance art. The two disciplines are rarely seen
on stage, they can produce, however, unique results and provide a self-
contained, dynamic, scenic reality.
The starting points of the research are four basic elements: time, space,
the body of the performer and the relationship between the performer and
the spectator. Through physical and vocal improvisations I develop a
sequence of actions, which after exploration with various dynamics and
rhythms leads to a structure. No theatrical role is played neither there is a
plot in the classical sense. This comes, instead, out of the entire dynamic
sequence and lies to manifold interpretations.
In order to research the effect of the audience presence on the unfolding
of the performance, the traditional stage is being removed and the playing
area is being expanded: new seating arrangements are examined to
provide an immediate communication with the spectator.
