»There in the far valley« (Motion Theatre)

Surreal dream landscape, atmospheric installation or scenic biotope? Giant mushrooms, sculptures resembling termite mounds, sulphurous light. In the middle of it all there are three female figures: clever, impertinent, exalted, anti-idyllic. It is as though Alice in Wonderland had gone on a picnic with two girlfriends and all three were gazing with pleasure at their surroundings. If only the extraordarily spooky silence would cease, a silence that reminds of a lost time, of forms from the distant past, or of the process genesis that precedes existence. An esoteric and ironic fairytale about aimless bodies in motion, that combines reality, imagination and abstraction associatively, meditatively and with a subtle humour.
