EXTENDED HOURS – A performance series in three acts.

Kleine Humboldt Galerie invites three young female artists from Berlin to show their performances in the historic buildings of the Albrecht Daniel Thaer Institute and the Tieranatomisches Theater on Friday evenings during June and July 2023.

As a series, Extended Hours brings together three independent performances by the artists Lottie Sebes, Selin Davasse, and Elena Francalanci. After hours, the abandoned university buildings develop into sites for new, alternative knowledge practices. In the void, possibilities emerge: Embodied, narrative and sound-based expressions respond to the buildings in multi-sensory and exploratory ways. The artists make audible the histories embedded in the sites and invite both technical and animal voices to speak. Their interventions open up feminist narratives and explore the dimensions of silence.

Time becomes an individual sensation rather than a standardized unit, while the shared experience creates collectivity. Extended Hours provides a framework in which these potentials can reverberate and visitors can linger.

A.E. Anatomie.Evolution.Anfang.Ende …

Tieranatomisches Theater
Campus Nord, Philippstraße 13, Haus 3
06.11.2019, 7 p.m.
Against the background of advancing (bio-)technological possibilities, the dance performance looks at human beings and their evolutionary changing – a flowing, becoming process. With a precise movement vocabulary and in visually and acoustically well-defined arrangements, the choreographer duo WILHELM GROENER examines the shifts and extension of our perception and physical reality.

By means of performative installation, dance, sound and language the performance A.E. questions how new techniques and technologies affect our relation to other genres, objects and to our own physique. The participating performers become animated, hybrid figures whose movements oscillate between natural and artificial codings – open to multiple modes of appearance and viewing.

The anatomical auditory of the Tieranatomisches Theater provides the historical context of dissecting gazes as constructions of the supposedly own and other. These acts of anatomical as well as metaphorical ‘dissection’ are to undergo a critical revision in which the borderlines between the human and the non-human expand and enter new entanglements. The spectators become witnesses of the dance-anatomical explorations and – all together with the dancers – form resonance spaces for past, present and future physicalities. What will come to light?

A.E. Anatomie.Evolution.Anfang.Ende … is premiered on 6 November and is the new dance performance by the artist Mariola Groener and the dancer Günther Wilhelm, who have been working together under the label WILHELM GROENER since 2001.
