BETHY TRIO

BETHY TRIO © Tilman Hecker, 2021

Three performers form a trio on the floor of the SPREEHALLE, which breaks into light, sound, costume and video. The polyvalent and constellated body is one that points beyond itself, through meaning, past translation and into posture. Like Cerberus, death smears memory in reliquaries, temporary possessions become eternal possessions: worn clothes, a starfish found in an oyster shell, key rings.

BETHY TRIO was developed during a short stay at Schloss Wiepersdorf and brings together text fragments by Kathy Acker, Bettina von Arnim, Dodie Bellamy and Sarah Schulman, among others. In a staging that aims at the possibility of trans-historicity, the words deal with science and poetry, the individuality of the genders and the expressions of overcoming Christian ideals of love, moving between historical epochs. With Tilman Hecker (direction), Anna Papathanasiou, Ivan Cheng, FRZNTE (performance), Scott Bolman (lights), Lars Paschke (costumes) and Thorsten Hoppe (sound).
