Based on assembly techniques from Nouvelle Vague and the author Kathy Ackerʼs cut-up technique, RAUBKOPIE brings well-known pictures and scenes to mind. Their reproduction and comparison leads to distorted images that zooms in on the feminine, revives it and lets it disintegrate. A soundscape of quotes, intimate thoughts, correspondence and Hollywood stories detached narration from linearity, movement from meaning. The three bodies on the stage alternates between acting and performance, retelling and embodiment, appropriation and representation.
Concept & performance: Amina Szecsödy, Lena Appel, Anneliese Ostertag
