performance Kunstbastion Berlin 2018/ July 12
with Cosima Winter, Gesine Eggers and Melina Matzanke
After the ancient japanese myth from the Kojiki, Amaterasu once hid inside a stone because she could not bare to see how her brother acted badly
But since she is the godess of the sun, all light disappeared form the surface of the world. All the other deitys gathered in fron of her stone and considered how to get her back to the earth. They started having a party to make her jealouse and it worked, so far the myth.
Considering all the crazy things, people and believes in the world that we share , it is likely that Amaterasu is still in her rock hiding from us.
This performance was a guided experiment to bring her back to our world.
We brought presents, we drank, we ate, we performed rituals and we danced.
The best guests always come late.
The performance took place at / Germany.
