Suggestions:

Wait, the performance will start soon

There's no wind in the Internet

Just clouds and windows

No wind, no wind, no wind, no wind

There's no me in the night we met

Where's the sound in the words that you just said

Be me, be me

Be me

About

There’s no wind in the Internet
Just clouds and windows
No wind, no wind, no wind, no wind

There’s no me in the night we met
Where’s the sound in the words that you just said
Be me, be me

be me

is a lonely expression, as lonely as I am.
I ask you to take my identity; it’s blurred in a fog of anonymity.
We are a community because we share what we see: to see is to participate, to see is to know. You can't unsee.
Together we are witnesses of the same high resolution silence.
Where’s the sound in the words that you just said?

be me is a dance performance born from the encounter between Parini Secondo (Sissj Bassani, Martina Piazzi IT) and magdalena öttl (DE). During 3 month of coexistence in Essen and Bochum the artists developed an audiovisual formula to be staged and streamed on the 25th of March 2021 live from Kunsthallen Bochum.

Inspired by the concept of meme, most commonly used as a linguistic sign within online communities, Parini and Magdalena created a choreographic template which highlights the self-organisational mechanisms of a small community populated by seven performers and witnessed by an online audience. Through copying and imitation, the whole community is the author of the choreography which becomes solid just in the moment of staging. Silent agreements are floating in the space, carried by the wind they spread like a rumor and promote the existence of a temporary truth.

Developed in the frame of #KREATIVCAMPUSRUHR Artists in Residence I International Co-Production It’s not my responsibility to get famous, a project carried out by ecce GmbH, supported by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Further Performances in April 2021 are co-produced by Maschinenhaus Essen in the frame of Förderung Mittelzentren Tanz & Performance for which Maschinenhaus Essen has been selected 2019-22. Supported by the Ministry of Culture and Science NRW, NRW Landesbüro Freie Darstellende Künste & nrw landesbuero tanz. Further Support by the city of Essen, city of Bochum, municipality of Savignano Sul Rubicone.

be me ist eine Tanzperformance, die aus der Begegnung zwischen Parini Secondo (Sissj Bassani, Martina Piazzi, IT) und Magdalena Öttl (DE) hervorgegangen ist. Innerhalb von 3 Monaten Koexistenz im Ruhrgebiet entwickelten die Künstlerinnen eine audiovisuelle Formel, die am 25.3.2021 erstmals online zu erleben ist.

Inspiriert von dem Konzept des Mems, welches zumeist als linguistisches Zeichen von Online Gemeinschaften verwendet wird, entwickelten Parini und Magdalena ein "choreografisches Template”, welches die Mechanismen der Selbstorganisation einer kleinen Community aufzeigt. Das Online-Publikum wird aktiver Zeuge einer Choreografie, die sich erst im Augenblick ihrer Aufführung verfestigt. Stille Vereinbarungen schweben im Raum, getragen vom Wind verbreiten sich Rumoren und täuschen die Existenz einer vorübergehenden Wahrheit vor.

be me ist Produkt der Recherche It’s not my responsibility to get famous im Rahmen der internationalen Co-Produktion #KREATIVCAMPUSRUHR. Gefördert vom Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft des Landes Nordrhein- Westfalen, durchgeführt von der ecce GmbH. Die Umsetzung der Inszenierung im Maschinenhaus Essen wird im Rahmen der Förderung Mittelzentren Tanz & Performance gefördert, für welche das Maschinenhaus Essen für die Jahre 2019-22 ausgewählt wurde, gefördert von Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft des Landes NRW, NRW Landesbüro Freie Darstellende Künste und nrw landesbuero tanz. Weitere Förderer sind das Kulturamt Essen, Kulturbuero Bochum, Savignano Sul Rubicone.
