«Are We Bodies?» with Sophie Jung (CH)

with Sophie Jung (CH)

Sophie Jung performances are interplays between poetry, objects and costumes. Her associative word chains are running and dancing, ebbing and flowing, entering and leaving her body. It’s as if each object and its according articulation, produces a new layer of physical embodiment, which Sophie weaves into a lingual anatomy of her own.

This «Fun & Fury!» Performance Dienst-Tag / To-Do's Day is part of the program Are we bodies? curated by Vlada Maria Tcharyeva (CH)

Entrance fee: CHF 10.- (Cabaret Voltaire Members: free!)
