60 min.
Premiere 18.12.2019 Ufer Studios, Berlin

A Performance by Ana Lessing Menjibar in collaboration with Philipp Kullen (Sound), Vera Fenyvesi Köppern (Dramaturgy) and Eric Winkler (Costume).

“Flamenco is tragic in the sense of Greek tragedy, this remarkable synthesis of Apollonian artistic beauty and Dionysian drunkenness.“ Claus,1985

Between an ecstatic and formal investigation, Ana Lessing Menjibar experiments with a cultural legacy gathered from her flamenco background. She opens this archive to reveal a series of states, creatures and concepts of spaces. This journey includes a digital and energetic feedback loop, a vulnerable dialogue of inner and outer bodily sounds and rhythms. In a hybrid space somewhere between installation and the black box theatre, Lessing Menjibar’s research decomposes flamenco to transform it within the field of performance art.

With the special support of Jeremy Wade (Mentor), Sandra Umathum (Mentor) and Sophia New (Tutor) and with a special thanks to Monica Bonvicini (External-Mentor).
