Gemeinsam Abhängen/Let´s hang out together!

 

Gemeinsam Abhängen started in summer 2012 in the “Tryangle” artists’ lab to which the tanzhaus nrw had invited me as part of a European project. A colleague had worked on “I want to fly”. Inspired by the feeling of floating and the enjoyment of being able to surrender my own bodyweight, I was looking for a construction that made this possible without having to accomplish it from my own strength. From a singular t-shirt with some safety and durability issues, in co-operation with Cordula Körber, Gemeinsam Abhängen became: a walk-in installation planned to be shown in the foyer of theatres. A tank top, a belt and a pair of shorts are hanging in the room and can be stepped into for hanging out and leaning together on the table to have a drink in an extraordinary room situation.
