Artist Talk in English accompanying ‘Extranea’
They use the language of the light and the body to question the concept “be stranger to yourself” with a performance installation shown as a work-in-progress. Coming from France, the collective K-LI-P looks forward to discussing the project with a Berlin audience. Free admission!
Extranea confronts our personal, cultural and generational origins and questions our concept of identity in light of the world's current movement and dynamism. The audience takes part, on its own initiative, in the performance as well as in the installation. From the given elements, it builds its journey, its own experience of sensory and personal perceptions over the time of the process. The artists look forward to discussing their journey with the audience!
Admission to the performance, installation and talk are free! In order to help us organize, please let us know if you're coming by sending an email to reservierung(at)theaterscoutings-berlin.de.

About the Venue:
Uferstudios_ for Contemporary Dance
On the banks of the Panke in Wedding, new life has sprung up in what was once a maintenance facility for the BVG, Berlin’s public transport company. The garages have been transformed into fourteen roomy studios, as well as offices and ateliers. The site’s past remains visible, and the industrial vibe can still be felt.What’s unusual about Uferstudios is the synergy of artistic production, education and information: its various uses come together to form an electrifying spectrum. Artists in residence cross paths with students and instructors from the Inter-University Center for Dance as well as artists and staff from the Tanzfabrik Berlin, ada Studio and Tanzbüro Berlin. It’s a place to rehearse, research, work and study. Studios, a media library, a communal kitchen and a spacious courtyard are all available for public rehearsals, lectures, workshops, performances, or just taking a relaxing break from work.
About the performance/ installation:
The collective K-LI-P works on transforming the physical space, shaping it with light and body, into a mental space saturated with cultural references, with memories, sounds, images and texts. Him, influenced by conceptual and minimal art, builds an installation of fluorescent tubes of which he's remotely controlling the effects, whilst multicasting sounds (among other things, electroacoustic creations by Jérôme Poret), and filmed sequences from different sources. Her, in line with John Cage and Merce Cunningham, inscribes in this moving framework danced actions cut in the rhythm of space, but also video excerpts from the “body journal” she tends to daily. (...) Held in this set, the spectator moves in a memory flow that surrounds and encompasses him, a circling loop in which images, sounds and body, layer in a grand mix.

About the artists collective:
One composes with lights, the other with her body. Philippe Veyrunes and Christel Brink-Przygodda founded in 2005 the collective K-LI-P (Korpër-LumièreInstallation-Performance: “Body-LightInstallation-Performance”), a name that sums their program, and of which they make the core (to which other artists can aggregate to depending on projects). Their intention tends to, through shared experiences, to ruffle, rather than mingle, their imagination. Both of them know what they won't do. “I don't position myself in a situation where I'll light a dancer that would try and tell a choreographic story” specifies Philippe Veyrunes. As for Christel Brink-Przygodda, she even considers that what she does isn't pertaining to “dance, but rather a matter of writing a score supported by the concept of performance”.
