Reality Check (2019)

by Eva Leemans 

performed at Pertanzform (Tanzraum Berlin) and STEP IN (Waschhaus Potsdam)

with support from Tanzfarbik Schule Berlin

A physical exploration of invisible structures, questioning the value of belief systems in a modern, global society. 

Reality Check evokes an imaginary universe created by the performer. A thight net is woven between the peformer and the invisible structures in which they both support eachother. But what happens when the imagination disappears and all that is left is an empty space of infinite possibilities? By referring to Kierkegaards concept of "dizzyness of freedom", the work portrays the struggle that comes from the human need to be part of a structure and the simultaneous desire for (personal) honesty/truth. 


One T(w)o One (2019)
by Matina Kaiafa and Eva Leemans

performed at Urban Performance Series (Urbanraum)

What does it mean to be together? Is it a matter of timing, space or moving in the same way? Do we have to lose a part of our individuality in order to build up a dialogue or a common language? Is an environment of pre-constructed rules and familiar patterns, the key context in which we can find synchronicity and connection? 

The piece is a constant questioning for the performers as well as for the audience of whether we are one or two. 
Can we be one and two at the same time? 


Placing, marking, dancing (2019)
Concept and creation by Kerem Shemi in co-creation with Eva Leemans

performed at Hosting#1/see-through (Studio Tess, Berlin)

Spacial, temporal and physical happenings unfold relations and meanings, which are constructed and dissolved, filled and emptied. The inside is extended out and the outside resonates in. Processes of clarity and arbitrariness become intertwined into a dynamic space, moving on the thin line between the sense and the non- sense.
