At the borders and gradients of dance, performance and theater, the two performers HARTMANNMUELLER create a sensual scenario of a state of nature that most likely was not one. In their Garden of Eden, it is not only human contradictions that can be experienced as intermediate tones and color gradients. Animals speak, God is a voyeur who questions himself through his existence, and nature, discursively identified with reactionary thought, brings in that while it will forever be unloved, we remain dependent on it. An evening in this garden is like a last supper, consisting of the fruits from the tree of knowledge: We are born naked and the rest is drag! Amen.
