EVENTUELL. HUMAN – premier in August 2019

a performance written by eventuell.

The starting point of „eventuell.human“ lies in long discussions about the philosophies of being a human as an individual but also of being a performer and about a possible resulting contradiction. The duo centers the physical, psychic, emotional, biological and libidinous aspects of mankind in their new program and tries to find ways to give importance to all these universal needs in their performance. Quoting from the manifesto „The New Discipline“ by Irish composer Jennifer Walshe: „Perhaps we are finally willing to accept that the bodies playing the music are part of the music, that they’re present, they’re valid and they inform our listening whether subconsciously or consciously. That it’s not too late for us to have bodies.“ Therefore the bodies of the artists are often neglected or figurativelyeven made invisible in today‘s performance practice – the only purpose of the performing artist is to carry out precisely whatever action is asked for. The body is of minor importance to the content but much more acts as the executor. This collides with the fact that the performers body is his only way to express himself. So, how can a performer truly express himself without losing the connection to his own body as a human being?
