THE WAKE

neworks | ada Studio in den Uferstudios

Production Details / Press Releases

THE WAKE is an immersive performative situation that explores the threshold as a physical space and state. What occurs on the threshold between the conscious and the unconscious, the physical and the virtual world, a questionable past and an unknown future? THE WAKE is based on a research project in co-authorship with Josefine Mühle entitled “UNDER THE DOME”, that draws on the mythological symbolism of the underworld journey and C.G. Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious. “UNDER THE DOME” works with self-induced altered states of consciousness to source unknown archetypes from the depth of the body.

Xenia Taniko is a choreographer and performer based in Berlin. In their work they use physical intensity, props and other aesthetic means to speculate about human embodiment and its politics. Their solo and collaborative works have been presented in theatres and galleries in Berlin, Hannover, Leipzig, Amsterdam, Prague, Brussels, Luxembourg and New York, among others. Since 2013 they are working with various international artists as collaborator, performer and assistant. Xenia studied politics and philosophy in Leipzig and Paris and is a 2016 graduate of HZT Berlin.
