LICHT2 DEEP BREATH is about death in deed –but also about peace of mind!” (R. B.)

LICHT2 DEEP BREATH, a trio with 4 performers, dives into the time before time and there discovers a man and a woman, dressed into black and white bands, vulnerable, searching, liberating, overpowering each other in the sign of their inescapable death. They are captive in a white territory, surrounded by a black universe which is revealed to them in the language of eternal geometry. A creature haunts the place, the concierge. She supervises, she moves 7 stones like 7 planets through the universe, pours sand like time, but one night she is deceived by a man in a fool’s cap, yes, even ripped off, and she starts making mistakes; in view of the initiating love of the human couple, she becomes jealous of emotion and intimacy and advances into the white territory, takes a deep breath herself in order to breath, like a human. Her mind is beset by fears. Human suffering moves into her head. Once born, death takes domination over her. Thus she grasps at straws and puts together a magic ball, perhaps the orb of a great empire, maybe just a ball uniting the opposites of the world, like the world formula; she leaves it to man, so that he rule over everything! – Or find the way to free himself – and her. Was the insight in paradise: „The world has no truth, it is free and empty “? Poetry is the bicycle of the mind.
