„Repeat, Repeat – until it is in your Bones. / The Repetition will break us open.” (So Mayer)
Dolphins have a Brain-part which human beings don’t – that system is processing emotions, they have a highly elaborated emotional system in build, which we in »Flipper« want to reach out for. »Flipper« wants to trigger us in order to transform into a different shape, a different time scape. In a 24-hour happening, we want to transform ourselves into other forms and produce other sensations of time.
What if we would be able to change our linear experience of time and space into a 5 Dimensional Vortex? This Vortex, this Earth is made and relived by this creative emotional organisms, called »Flipper«. Become the black hole, the entrance, the ghosts and the nerve system. »Flipper« creates a new Universe, a queer morphed time wrap, a transformation of our connectivity. We are inviting to this transcended noise, in which we reinvent ourselves within this Vortex.
Why is it that you could feel the gaze by an other person on your skin? How to amplify this gaze into a touch? How to be touched without skin-transmission? How to touch a lot of Bodies in different timezones? How to communicate through tangency? How to be touched by the Weather, Waves, Hormonal Enhancement, the Death? »Flipper« is surrounded by the night, the sea and the universe. The connected bodies are processes that incorporate the streets, we spit into the universe, we shapeshift into the streets, we shapeshift into the architecture, we become the hormones – you find in the water, we finally become our own future.
The audience is invited to attend these 24 hours, to become part of »Flipper«. It is possible to stay for the entire duration, only a self-selected period or to come back after a break. One ticket is valid for the whole time. Sleeping facilities are available, a bar with drinks is open throughout.
Created by Heinrich Horwitz and a fluid collective consisting of Rosa Wernecke, Magdalena Emmerig, Annett Hardegen and a wide variety of performers. The group has been working together in different constellations since 2016 and is concerned with the idea of constantly transforming the theater space as a utopian practice.
