Antje Schupp/ Beatrice Fleischlin/ Christoph Sepp Rufer/ Martin Gantenbein (DE/CH) Performance 2019/20

Discipline: Performance/Theatre/Dance 

Projectname: Loss & Luck 

Christoph: “Loss & Luck is a performance about death and what if teaches us about life, about loss and about the happiness that you can feel despite a loss. It is a work about speechlessness that can capture you in existential life situations and how to find strength and confidence again.” 

Antje: “The right words at the right moment can be remembered forever. The wrong words at the wrong moment aswell. So which words do you choose in an existential moment? Perhaps none at all? Loss & Luck is a performance about death and what it teaches us about life, about loss and the happiness you can feel despite a loss. It is a work about speechlessness that can capture you in existential life situations and about how to find strength and confidence again. An homage to all those people who release this power in themselves despite adverse circumstances. One of these people is Ludwig van Beethoven, whose music is at the centre of this work.” 

What inspires you? 

Beatrice: ”Children and very old people, coincidences, stickers, scraps of conversation as they pass by, imprints on coffee cupy and slogans on house walls, but most of all people who concentrate on their business and at the same time treat everyone and everything with care and affection.” 

Antje: “The world around me. People. Rousing personalities. Courage. Unusual things. Chuzpe.” 

Martin: ”The cooperation with Antje Schlupp an Sigal Zouk.” 

Christoph: “Ramdomness. Space. Architecture. Literature and Art.”

How would you describe your way of working? 

Antje: “Collaborative. Concentrated. Also effective. Body, mind and music.” 

Beatrice: ”I try to participate in an atmosphere in which intuition and experience of the project participants collide with what we are looking for together. In the best case it becomes humor and trust in each other or in what we do.” 

Martin: “Interdisciplinary.” 

Christoph: “intuitive-searching, discursive and conceptual.”
