Blind Date (Literally) / Los (t) Ninjas


Production Details / Press Releases

How about getting together on a blind date with someone you already know very, very well?

After many adventures together on the road, Los(t) Ninjas take a stance in Berlin, the city that brought them together, back in the day, to glue limbs and thoughts, reanimating the practices that have become and gone, died and reappeared. Los(t) Ninjas Practice is a rule-free, sense-filled, non-sensed, awkward practice that goes from hands-on work with the material of the body and reminds us of our own survival skills. Los(t) Ninjas create a form of myth-making that discharges all equations by animating varieties of play, kinds of wildness and forms of daring.
This time, our proposal focuses on body sensory skills and experiences that dispense from the sight sense, to be guided by the materiality of what cannot be seen. Starting from the idea that everything is energy: waking reality, dreams, visions, solid objects, emotions, sights, sounds, smells, or any kind of sensation.
