How often do we experience a moment of lucidity? Can we make them happen more often, or do we just “let them happen?“ What sort of thoughts come to us in those moments of daze? Are we trying too hard in this age of self-awareness and self-validation?

About the performance

Meditations

Berlin newcomer Max Levy presents his first evening work, a collage of self-awareness and observation, spent in the moments between moments. Utilizing a background of classical education morphed by countless collaborations with renowned contemporary choreographers, the former soloist of Staatstheater Nürnberg seeks the essence of detail and finality: the surreal moments, when not looking at anything could open your eyes to everything.

“How concentrated/lost had I been that so much time could pass without notice? How had I not seen the sky change colors as the day passed by? How had I not counted the drops of water before a cup overflowed? How had I not realized I was falling in/out of love until my heart was wide open? I always realized afterwards. It was at these moments after the fact, that led me to ponder those gray in-between periods that I had been so focused and unaware. There was always something there, just out of the corner of my eye, that I couldn't ever acknowledge.”
