Participatory performance

The starting point of the participatory performance are dwellings, houses, their vulnerability, their loss, the replacement, the provisional, but also the common growth and destruction in them. What emerges in their protection?

In times of catastrophic events, people find refuge in makeshift shelters where communities must be renegotiated. Using the metaphor of the greenhouse, as a catalytic but fragile construction, as a symbol of the earth in times of man-made climate change, we want to rehearse practices of temporary communality with the visitors in the context of the theater. What emerges between us in breathing, singing, storytelling and listening together? Where are the healing and destructive potentials of our coming together?
