A piece of the series ›Text and Dance‹
one drop in between a trillion of drops of water. shoulder to shoulder. we are one body. synchronous as a movement. nobody stays behind. everyone protects everyone and everyone sees everything. like warriors on an assyrian relief. always two to a whole merged legs, always two arms united in a swing.
A house is like a reef. With its caves where people hide. Because of the fear of the hunters. The curtains and their potted plants are their cover. But alone in their caves they are prey. These victims. So we venture out and live the idea of the flock. Let us look for the ideals in our petit bourgeois existence and hope that the border to radicalism will not be blurred. Freedom and happiness are as inextricably linked as the movement of a drop of water and its speed.
In groups, the spectators meet the swarm of fanatical ideals in the Lübecker Str. 6 and move with them through 8 apartments and a cellar.
