New Empathies: My Only Memory (in pieces)

Performative Installation von Juan Dominguez
My Only Memory
My Only Memory © Promo
We hear a voice without seeing who is speaking; sometimes it is female, sometimes male, partly in the singular, partly in the plural; it speaks to itself, challenges itself, responds... The installation, "My Only Memory (in pieces)," by artist and choreographer Juan Dominguez, presented as part of the series "New Empathies,” is an adaptation of the performance, "My Only Memory." As if blasted into the room, the individual components of the original text become audible at unexpected places within the building as fragments of a textual choreography. The acoustic trail finally leads to a massive sculpture in radialsystem’s Side Hall.

In this performance, the physical-visual does not come to the fore: the voice we listen to becomes the physical body, and the spoken text the movement and action of the piece. The decontextualization and fragmentation of the performance give rise to ephemeral moments of varying duration which render the fleeting nature of change and transformation perceptible.

The performance takes place every day from 3 - 7 pm, last admission is at 6.40 pm. Every 20 minutes 4 persons are admitted.

If possible, please bring your own headphones to the performance.

Admission is free. Registration via register@radialsystem.de is required.

New Empathies

As society continues to drift further apart, the concept of empathy is currently experiencing a renaissance. The ability to empathize is regarded as the central tool with which to fight the rage exerted against the supposed Other, yet it is also seen as the danger inherent in sentimental depoliticization. In June 2019, radialsystem launched “New Empathies”, a series of programmes spanning two years, consisting of concerts, installations, choreographies, workshops, and discussions.

We are getting closer!

Over four long summer weekends, we will once again open radialsystem to the public and cordially invite you to the concerts, installations, and performances by and with the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, Hanno Leichtmann, Peter Cusack, Sandhya Daemgen, Deva Schubert, Guerilla Architects and Alicia Agustín, Sasha Waltz & Guests, Tilman O'Donnell and Mikkel Ploug, Juan Dominguez and Wojtek Blecharz.
The different rooms of the building, the Spree Terrace, and the covered Deck are all to be discovered in a different way than before. Over the past few weeks, we have come to learn how important and yet fragile the shared experience of live performances is. In order to ensure that everyone feels safe and at ease at our relaunch, we want to allow for plenty of space and time for these encounters to unfold onsite. Therefore, together with the participating artists and ensembles, we have developed artistic formats that foster unusual aesthetic experiences and through which radialsystem can also be encountered in a new way.
