Purple  Spheres

PURPLE SPHERES is about objects that surround us every day. They determine what we are, do, and think, and still we don’t notice them before they are gone, damaged, or of a completely different shape. The performers, Mirjam Sögner and Luan de Lima, embark on a search for things in PURPLE SPHERES, taking us with them on different trails inside and on their bodies, as traces on yet other objects, as sounds, words, gestures. In the absence of the things, it is other layers of being that speak in this piece: our entanglement with them and at the same time their alienness. Come along on a journey into the enigmatic, which makes access more difficult the closer we get to it, in a time that centres more and more around the tangible while humanity acts on the scale of a geological force.
