Just as in the previous works “every single day”, “anderland” and “wut”, the new piece reflects primal human characteristics. Pain and passion belong to our strongest emotions and comprise tremendous energies. They can be a driving force, as well as a trigger of tragedies and have always mirrored human desires and abysses. In “the thing I am” they appear as tableaux of deliquescent, yet pained and passionately swaying bodies in which blase strength and fragility. Saturated with a sensibility that penetrates under the skin, they interlace the intensity of feelings into the scenes of touching vulnerability.

In contrary to a world, increasingly marked by superficial perception and dulling society, in which very few things barely move us instead of shaking us to our foundation, the new piece aspires to vehemence and truthfulness of feelings. Sensibility and revolt, plight and devotion interweave into a hybrid panorama, whilst a crushed beauty slumbers behind the more tangible affliction. “the thing I am” being an anatomy of passion, in which unusual and hidden enthrall our senses.

A production of cie. toula limnaios with the kind support of Berlin Senate of Culture and the Fund for Performing Arts, with federal means.
