This is a black and white graphic depicting two human torsos with their hands on the right side of the image, stacked vertically and reproducing the same hand movement. Their right hands are pouring soil into their left hands, which appears to be pouring the soil away. Below the torsos are multiple small and larger close-up images of the soil being poured away. On the left side of the image are two sentences. The white text at the top reads: 'Let's skip it.' The black text at the bottom reads: 'Let's keep it.

Since 2018, our series „Macht Kritisch(es) Theater“ has opened the stage for
structural reflections on power relations in theater companies. The past panel discussions and workshops of the series brought up topics such as social exclusivity, the anti-racism clause, and, pandemic-related, the resonances of theater and digital space.

Lecture-performance “Let’s skip it. Let’s keep it.” is an intersection between personal experiences and historical events.

“I am going through a vacuum. This is a place where nothing is ever fixed. There are many gaps. Everything is in a falling apart state. 

There are longings and dreams. Disabled, neurodivergent. The relationships there are shaped by rocks which I had in my pockets as I was a child and by tortured rocks which I found here on the photos. I am lining up objects, pictures and words.” 

“I am looking at the document that points me towards the missing pieces as well as the new voids

Pausing

Unfolding

Untangling

Unraveling:

Cases, proofs, silhouettes

Ways, routes, waywards.”

“I hold in my hands black and white photographs from my village. The bogs have been drained, laid in smooth lines of peat. The peat workers are exhausted. Machines and people are brought in by railroad, and peat is transported away. What spaces have these routes created?”

Jeanna, Kira, Victoria collaborate in the lecture-performance exploring intersections between personal experiences and historical events. This fluid sharing delves into traumas that transcend generations, shaping human and non-human bodies and landscapes.
