Performing Camouflage

  • Performance

Ausgehend von einer Choreographie der Performance-Künstlerin Veza María Fernández, die wie eine Anleitung zum Unsichtbar-werden gesehen werden kann, wagen die Künstlerinnen des DRC gemeinsam den Versuch des Verschwindens.


Performing Camouflage erzeugt einen tiefen Zustand der Entspannung und onirischen oder träumerischen Wahrnehmung durch Text/Poesie, Wörter, Tanz und Meditation. Es ist ein Ritual, das an die politische und revolutionäre Kraft der Redefinition von Wörtern, Bedeutung und Begriffen glaubt. Man muss nicht alles verstehen. Wenn man alles versteht, dann kann man sich nichts mehr vorstellen, dann ist nicht mehr alles möglich.


Hier einige Auszüge der Texte, die Veza Maria Fernandez im Rahmen dieser Performance gelesen hat:


Let ́s close our eyes and become a chameleon. Let ́s become one one one like a one who is not one. What form is an I which is an us which can have all forms contain all colors sexes tastes hair background etcetera. Tell me maybe it is a zero not a one if the zero is a mere invention or just nothing it is the invention of potential of possibilities. Let ́s take the zero as the transparent forever u and me


Probably my email is not the best thing for you right now, but you know me, I am really bad at not saying or writing or leaving things unspoken waving around. Maybe I also need to write these words to not feel lonely (or a loser) with my thoughts and be able to little by little erase any kind of hope. I always knew you would never feel for me the way I did. Or that I was probably not the person meant to be at your side. Or that we had a terrible timing. Or that I lost complete control over my life and this made me do say things which were not always right. Anyhow, I always will care about you and also want the best of bests for you and love is mostly the best for a person. I don ́t regret any single moment, any single tear I let fall with or because of you because without all what you made me feel, I would not be where I am now. I think every single word I have written since I met you, every single dance is about that love I feel for you. Kind of uncontrolled, obsessive and so virtual. I am scared not to feel something like that again. But uniqueness is precious as nothing and the price of uniqueness is that it is only one.


watery eye watery mouth
behind my eye cave

my water eye sweat is about to burst

burst into nothing you tell me about nothingness

the empire of nonsensical uncorrelated

unspecific unease

very predictable something

swallow it all come on do it all

So if uniqueness is only one we like the one of the experience but the zero of the possibilities


Let ́s do an exercise, if you could camouflage in what would you turn
Why would you camouflaged
We will start with our hand


“Diese Performance ist in einer Ecke des esc medien kunst labors entstanden. Wir sind alle gesessen. Wir schlossen einige Male unsere Augen. Veza hat ein bisschen getanzt und dann haben wir alle Camouflage mit unseren Händen berührt. Man muss nicht immer alles verstehen.” (Veza Maria Fernandez)
