TRANSITRAUM

TRANSITRAUM
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.

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.

LAND WITHOUT WORDS by Dea Loher

‘It is, I cannot describe it any differently, a pointlessness which also enters words and leaves them without meaning. Something natural gets destroyed. The normal process, the safety, of putting my feelings and experiences into words is broken.

Dea Loher/speech to the awarding of the Bertolt Brecht Award, 2006

When language is not enough anymore to put experiences into words, when art has reached its limits – and then? After her travels through the war marked Afghanistan in 2005, the dramatist Dea Loher describes that state: ‘It is, I cannot describe it any differently, a pointlessness which also enters words and leaves them without meaning.’ The artist collective missingdots shows an interdisciplinary performance over the loss of naturalness.
