“Home Altrove #Berlin” is a site-specific performance in dialogue with the city of Berlin. The work explores the idea that the inner life of any performance can be considered a home in the sense of a personal, functional or emotional archive.
As our perception of “home” has been much altered by the events of recent years, the project also addresses the fragility of our current circumstances by raising a seemingly simple question: What is home these days?
“Home Altrove #Berlin” is a two-part performance, with one part taking place outdoors in the neighboring area of Wedding and one part taking place indoors at Uferstudios. The interplay between the performer, the audience and the indoor/outdoor landscapes stimulates a shift in perception: The concept of home as a domestic space begins to tip towards a concept of home as a language.
