Based on the title of an exhibition (FIGUR-GRUND 2, 2022 at Kunstverein KunstHaus Potsdam), Eva Burghardt, Elma Riza & Susanne Soldan open up the urban-public space of the city through dance and film. In GRUNDstück, the dancing body plays with the surrounding architecture and thus complements the urban choreography or refers to its absence.
Created in Potsdam as part of a two-week residency by DiR - Dance in Residence Brandenburg.
Be Right Back (2022, 76 min.) – German with english subtitles Frauke Havemann (Berlin)
Frauke Havemann’s new film Be Right Back humorously illuminates the darker side of human nature in the twilight of the forest. A small group of people live isolated in an abandoned vacation resort in the forest. Their absurd daily routine is thrown into disarray by the arrival of a mysterious stranger. When it turns out that their food supply has disappeared, the unsettled residents must set out into the forest in search of something to eat. But the group encounters unforeseen obstacles — or is the forest laying false trails?
