the half through2023

Is time an illusion? The performers in the performance „the half through“ deal with this question. This year‘s theme of the project 3RD-SPC./RP is „time dilation“. In exploring the movements from this point of view, the performers deal with questions of hope, fate, acceptance and relief. A vocabulary of admiration emerges through which their own positioning on the football field is formed. Martin Pfeifle‘s installation deconstructs the football field, creating a stage space of its own that is used by the performers as a place for seekers and stranded people. As a way of sharing physicality and queerness, not as usual through a ball to play with, but through rituals of steps and rhythm.

What a perseverance and presence in this community that everyone creates together. How do I create space for myself physically? Only through a movement or through the mouth, which can show our vulnerability. In this linguistic gesture, when it is used as an instrument, when everyone sings together „Is there anybody out there?”
