POETiK P opens its kaleidoscope: an evening filled to the brim with desire, poetry and the preoccupation with one’s own physicality. Fashion, sound and dance mix and show themselves from an unexpected side. An anti-national team of artists* deals in a two-week residency with their own bodies and female* desire. February 18 is a climax, encounter, conclusion and prelude at the same time: the doors and the bar are open from 9 pm, excerpts of the work will be shown as an installation, there will be DJ and performative interventions. It can swim along – dancing and also observing.

The Residency: an Exploriment.

Initiated by the collaboration of Donya Speaks and Dampfzentrale Bern, the two-week residency brings together artists from Rwanda, Congo and Switzerland for the first time: the interdisciplinary team researches and explores the themes of eroticism, sensual knowledge, female* bodies and society.

The self-determination of the female* body is under attack. Whether laws about abortion, headscarf compulsions or burka bans. In the end, isn’t it always about the one thing: The control of female* sexuality?

Based on personal experiences and political events, the team explores the language around sexuality and the shell, i.e. the clothing that covers the body or makes it visible. Under the motto “the personal is the political,” the artists* are interested in the relationship between the two aspects and place them in a cultural and historical context. They work in the collective of the sisterhood and plead for more poetry, care and inwardness, in a world where only measurable and supposedly objective knowledge enjoys validity.
