In the not too distant future, replactions will be a part of our society, our organs, our cells. Our identity will be a shared variation of its origins, the mission to embody another being will become the destiny of many. Our desire for the impossible extremes will delegate our physical realities to experts – who will be the chosen ones? And where does fear and sensation settle in the future?

Inversion of a future is an artistic research connecting dance, music and stunt craft.

It aims to bring cinematic stunt doubles into a performative foreground in order to speak about survival instincts in the digital era. We investigate the world of stunt-craft in theatre and film, to highlight the relationship between illusion and reality, dive into the future of replication and cherish the embodiment of physical extreme situations.

It comprises theoretical readings, online video research, interviews with stunt people and other relevant professionals as well as physical and musical experiments in the studio.

The goals of the research are to develop a contemporary artistic language between dance, music and stunts and to merge these three fields as means for story telling about the future, doubles and fear. During the project we will gather intellectual and aesthetic material to advance stunt work in contemporary artistic contexts and develop new movement- and musical materials for stunt performers. Ultimately the research result will serve the creation of a live performance.

This year long research is supported by the Berlin Senat and the Fonds Darstellende Künste starting in April 2020.
