In THE CONVERSATION two performers follow the traces of modern surveillance technology. In the process, they reconstruct a forgotten conversation. Similar to the solution of a criminal case, fragments and traces of a crime scene are connected and put together to form a narrative. The process of their forensic evaluation takes on a life of its own and, in the chaos that ensues, poses the question: is the protection of privacy private or a challenge for collective political action?

What is the purpose of a sharing?

Artists who spend a residency at the Dampfzentrale Bern have the option of a Sharing. Sharings are public rehearsals where artists meet an interested audience. They offer the public an insight into the creative processes of artists. For their part, the artists use the Sharing to show interested parties what they are currently working on and what keeps them busy in an uncomplicated setting. The Dampfzentrale team discusses the Sharing with the artists in advance and moderates it.
