About the impossible attempt to think freedom into a space

Costa Compagnie
Edith-Russ-House for Media Art
In cooperation with the  Oldenburg State Theater
Part of the 2-year-project FIGHT (FOR) INDEPENDENCE (2018-2020)

In this choreographic installation the Berlin group Costa Compagnie with the dancer and choreographer Jascha Viehstädt and the director and artist Felix Meyer-Christian, as well as with the participation of the actresses Katharina Shakina, Helen Wendt, deal with the physical and spatial dynamics of global independence movements. Also in the team is the Catalan dancer and performer Montserrat Gardó Castillo, who has been following the conflict about independence and identity in her home city for years. Body images along the freedom of dissent, of isolation, loss, departure, aggression and solidarity are combined with a sound landscape of noises, sounds and language-fragments from the research conducted by Costa Compagnie in Great Britain, Bavaria, Catalonia and Southern Sudan. In this performance, movement and sound are condensed  into a world of associations surrounding the audience.
