Production Details / Press Releases
A life in the shadow of state censorship is an everyday event for many people. Even in places where the free expression of opinion seems to be enshrined, we find manifestations of censorship: self-censorship. Two performers translate their experiences with censorship and self-censorship in Korea, Colombia and Germany into a new language of movement located between invisibility and unpredictability. They make the phenomenon accessible in its complexity as a social relationship, political affect and as an everyday survival strategy.
Censorship as a state-sanctioned practice and self-induced everyday practice.
