Welcome to "Wetland", a wet and queer space that liquefies supposedly solid assumptions and comfortable categories of thought. On a prepared, watered stage floor, the performers enter into a slippery dialogue with their permeable bodies. "Wetland" is a humid area that does not only manifest as a metaphorical-political space, but rather emerges on stage as a material-real space in which binary structures seep away as if in a swamp. The choreography makes virtuosic sliding techniques coalesce with a queer perspective, an approach that celebrates pleasure with pop-cultural influences, and it forms a stream that flushes out our all-too-stable ways of worldmaking. Katharina Senzenberger and their accomplices invite us into a unique, fluid liminal space whose edges are in a constant state of flux.
