Two gentlemen from Real Madrid

Press commentary: The World Cup is over, but the best match has only just kicked off. In Leo Meier’s successful grass sports romance, the storm asks the midfield: “May I kiss you?” Coach and pastor also play fair play, and world premiere director Maike Bouschen finds the appropriate images. […] They are classily complemented with very lively, funny light and sound effects that pop and squeak, in the sound of a 1960s TV quiz show. This goes well with the candy-coloured costumes (with “men’s” logo, like the whole design in general) and thus comments whimsically on the often burlesque action. […]

2020: Invitation to the Bavarian Theatre Days in the section KLASSIKER FÜR HEUTE with “Jugend ohne Gott” (cancelled due to pandemic)

Press comment:
“[…] soundscapes and offstage texts (sound design: Lutz Gallmeister) conjure up a ghostly atmosphere in which the epic-surreal production thrives with suspense.”

Neue Presse Coburg / Dieter Ungelenk / 09.12. 2019

he inner conformity and moral cowardice corresponds to the ritualised theatre of movement with which the director exaggerates many scenes, condenses them (with the choreographic participation of Lean Fargel). The almost dance-like impetus exposes the mental attitudes in the physical postures. Aesthetically and intellectually reflective, this is extremely gripping, and is further atmospherically driven by oppressive sound (sound design by Lutz Gallmeister).

But both believe that when the fog comes down, everything will change!

Berlin 2020

Was bleibt, ist ein Gegenstand, der eine Geschichte erzählt.


[a] Eine Auseinandersetzung mit den Menschenrechten in grenzüberschreitenden Sprachen

The project [a] critically examines the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). In a dialogue that transcends languages, countries, and artistic disciplines, the international team examines both the unifying aspects of human rights and the problems they pose.

The project [a] takes the Human Rights Day as an opportunity for its artistic and multi-perspective reconsideration.
Artists from different countries – from both the global south and the global north – create a cross-border dialogue with the artistic media of sound, video, and dance. The sound and video installation uses the UDHR as its text and language material.

The 30 articles of the Declaration were recorded in 30 different languages and served as the sole source material for short compositions by various sound artists. Small teams of dancers and video artists developed video commentaries on the individual articles of the UDHR. These diverse components flow together in the sound and video installation connected by live performances.

Festival La Machine – Costa Rica – March 2023

A conversation between video art, dance, music and architecture
t hat questions the current idea of progress.
t.ejer is a verb in lowercase, like a subtle look at our living spaces,
made of concrete and at the same time in constant deconstruction -
both external and internal – that offers a look at the constant
construction of ruins, through a dialogue with the female body.

This video was recorded at the Berlin Brandenburg Airport – after almost 15 years of planning, construction began in 2006. Originally planned to open in October 2011, the airport has experienced a series of delays and cost overruns. This was due to poor planning of construction, execution, administration and corruption. The space is currently intact and abandoned. Performance by: Carolina Figueiredo, Video by: Fernanda Aloi, Music by: Lutz Gallmeister
