Per­for­mance & Kollaboration

If you would have to choo­se: Love play or fight?

Always fight. Love usual­ly wins. Play­ing only sepa­ra­tes. Without figh­t­ing, i wouldn’t be here — and Thea­ter Neu­markt wouldn’t have sent me a ques­ti­onn­aire to fill out.

How do you pro­tect yourself?

Per­forming grie­ving scores. Sharing. Trans­pa­ren­cy. Open­ness. Vulnerability.

How do you place yourself in the face of boundaries?

I used to cross them, myown and the bounda­ries of others. Howe­ver, moving through accoun­ta­bi­li­ty pro­ces­ses, I rea­li­zed that only through facing my bounda­ries, healing will be achie­ved. „Lear­ning Good Consent“,
