Can you practice flying? Of course! Failing? Absolutely! Floating? Wow! Make an attempt? But of course! Paper airplanes? Yes, those as well.
In FLIEGEN ÜBEN (PRACTICING FLYING) , research is conducted: how can your own body fly? What movements help in doing so? Which drives does the body support? What flight techniques exist? And what kinds of technical aids? How can borders be flown over? Where are we going to fly in the future or within our imagination?
With a great deal of physicality and a huge amount of joy in discovery, two performers practice flying and create a space in which the technical and the political can be questioned and marveled at using poetic images.
