Time: 19:00 Door, 19:30 1st Performance, 20:30 2nd Performance
Location: Hošek Contemporary, Ship HEIMATLAND close to Fischerinsel 2, 10179 Berlin

The evening begins at 7:00 PM with doors opening, followed by the first performance, Elision, from 7:30 to 8:15 PM. This intriguing performance delves into our relationship with the Earth and all its creatures through “sympoiesis” – a collaborative approach to creation.

The second performance, Cuentos de la Luna, takes place from 8:30 to 9:00 PM and delves into the construction of identity and its various layers of interpretation, drawing inspiration from surrealistic motives and their relationship with life. Both performances are developed with an ecological perspective in mind, blending the boundaries between humans and the natural world.

“Join us for an immersive experience inside the Heimatland vessel as we present 275 Cubic Meters, which equals to the total volume of the performance space. Don’t miss your chance to playfully engage with current ecological topics alongside our talented performers!”

@munir_arreola. Munir is a dance artist and in his work, he often likes to delve into the topics of his Mexican/Moroccan roots and everything that comes with the experience of living as a PoC queer weirdo. In his choreography Cuentos de la Luna, you can see 5 dancers as “Alebrijes,” magical creatures derived from Mexican tradition. Accompanied by live music and costumes by @nur_hektor, it’s about various layers of identity and its constant development as we struggle through life, dealing with insecurities, and fears, but also discovering our strengths.
