Irgendwas ist da.

HORROR! thematizes the clash of perspectives on the border between choreography and play. With ghosts as manifestations of various forms of fears, personified fears, as answers and questions to feelings of alienation, of superfluity, of loss. Phantasms as voids for thoughts that cannot be grasped.

Ghosts are gaps, placeholders and projection surfaces. Ghosts make fear a tangible quantity. We are afraid of the other. But we want it badly.

The popularity of ghostly figures testifies to our spiritual alienation. In their ridiculous, bedizened appearance, these terrifyingly fragile mediums are ambassadors of our fear of the Other, of otherness. The paranormal is part of all spiritual-religious lore. When something speaks to us from the past, it is through a medium - shrouded in a veil of distortion.

Shadowy, contourless figures emerge from the darkness. Three beings, tangled between this world and the other, caught in fragile contradictions and completely alienated from this world. Something bad must have happened, or worse, something bad is about to happen. Threateningly, the distorted images of fear float through the room. Unfortunately, they have forgotten whose fear they were supposed to outsource and from what. They are constantly in the way of themselves and each other and never escape their haunting loneliness. But now they have you. It's good that you are here. You can't run away. Three ghosts invite us on a tender journey to our fear of the other. A play development in the fog between acting, dance and conjuring.

dogs_against_depression is a freshly assembled group of artists whose cross-disciplinary work is based on the body as a central medium. Together they develop multi-perspective aesthetics, always with the longing to pursue an artistic practice that is not hierarchically pre-structured and gives space to different artistic approaches.
