What does it mean to enter a theatre room? To be part of a performance, whether as performer on stage or as guests in the audience? To be exposed with the charged tension on a scale from successful to failed? To indulge into the crazy mixture of adrenaline and expectations, to produce authenticity and consume fake?
Three performers are ready. They set everything in motion: physically, vocally and emotionally, in order to reach their audience with artistic means. They want to reach the musculus arrector pili – they go below the skin. Not with the one big drama, but with different performative exercise units. They jump into their tracksuits and get going as touch machines. They overspend theirselves up to physical and emotional exhaustion. What for? To touch you. missingdots works in this constellation for the first time. The artistic team goes from sense of touch with discussions about touch to production strategies, that create a goosebump moment.

We are starting this year with our residency research at HELLERAU Europäisches Zentrum der Künste. At laboratory border research  we will be experimenting with variable room structures, performative costumes and the movement of the audience. In the process we will investigate the impact of material settings on movement sequences of the performer and audience, while striving for a diversity of perspectives for the audience.

TRANSITRAUM – opening night accomplished!

We had our first opening night and four additional shows at http://Societaetstheater Dresden! We only had 12 visitors each show, it was a very exclusive event! We had a great audience and we are excited already for the upcoming shows in January 2021!!! Quote from a married couple from Stuttgart: ‘The trip to Dresden was already worth it just because of this show!’ 😉 THANK YOU!

residency for missingdots!

Thankful + happy!! Next year we will be able to do a research residency in cooperation with Hellerau Europäisches Zentrum der Künste and with support by ‘Fond Darstellende Künste’ through the format takeCareResidenzen. At our ‘laboratory border research’ the artists Julia Amme, Svea Duve, Katja Heiser, Nora Schott, and Katja Turtl will test out border crossing formats. 2021 – we will stay creative and create something!
Supported by ‘Fonds Darstellende Künste’ from financial resources by the representative of federal government for culture and media


One room, two projectors, three hoardings, 14 pieces of luggage made from 42 Euro-Norm boxes. It smells like different homes. Does that even exist in plural form? Two performers take us along their way. Where are we going, what are we leaving when we go, what are we taking and what will be unnecessary? We come across borders. We arrive. Have we arrived when we forget about our past or if we can write an error-free letter to the pension insurance?
missingdots takes the audience along the way through an interactive room installation and invites to sensually take part in different aspects of migration, like crossing borders, arriving and meeting people.

We are very happy about the scholarship Art despite Corona (Kunst trotz Corona) via We shape Dresden (Wir gestalten Dresden) within the additional financial resources by the Amt für Kultur und Denkmalschutz Dresden. Because of that, out following production TRANSITRAUM at the Societaetstheater will be taking place with two shows on Saturday and Sunday!!! And we will make sure that everyone sticks to hygiene rules;)

Transitraum – addition

We are very happy that Nils Michael Weishaupt is part of our team. As a sound designer he will create an audible component as part of the whole interactive room installation!!!

The newspaper DNN visited us

Thanks to Rico Stehfest for this great article called ‘The temperatures of the city’ published in the newspaper DNN on July 8th 2020! He visited our mobile office for real affectivities on Prager Strasse and looked precisely at our measuring station……..

Mobile office for real affectivities

The temperature of the neighborhoods will be measured!

We will be biking through Dresden and go to different neighborhoods, set up our mobile office for real affectivities and collect moods, desires, needs and experiences: they’re going to be pinned, typed, pipetted and stapled.  The results will be part of our next production Transitraum and will be shown in September 2020 at the Societaetstheater Dresden. Also, the audience will meet the mobile office for real affectivities there.

We will be on the road in June, July and August.
