In their performance “Superversammlung/superassemblage”, SEE! assemble unheard, marginalised, ridiculed and silenced voices. Every single choir that accumulates in every single performer* murmurs, whispers, sings, laughs, cries out and makes space for themselves. SEE! erects a performative sound monument for these congregations, dismantling it again, only to subsequently rebuild it – new, again and again, for each voice, for every sound, for every silencing. Unfamiliar seeming movements, never before heard voicescapes and exclamations collate with known words, gestures and poses. Boundaries blur. Picture puzzles intertwine. The ghosts of the past scrimmage with the voices from a visionary future. Sometimes some things explode, and then, it detonates, or smoke billows. And here they are already, the societies within every single one of us. As always in their works, the artist collective SEE! combines sound, text and movement into a self-sufficient, equal formal language, which can now be seen for the first time in a cinematic adaptation.
Cologne collective SEE! is made up of choreographers and artists SE Struck and Alexandra Knieps who, in cooperation with a set team of musicians*, dancers* and artists* from other genres, comprise a group to occupy spaces with performances and installations.
Duration: 30 min.
