(re)enacting stag(ing) rehearsal

Mousonturm Foyer 1. OG


(re)enacting stag(ing) rehearsal is a performance that further examines the tension between the different states of rehearsed- staged-performed; it investigates the transgressions taking place when a private act (the rehearsal) is enacted into a public space.
Following the video work STAGING REHEARSAL(2021), this project continues to question what actually happens in rehearsal processes and what happens to them as soon as they are shown and documented. The translation from life-into-video-into-life performance and the relationship between (un)staging of bodies and video cameras creates an inception-like feedback loop between the camera gaze and the present bodies; a re-enactment of the past through technology of the lens itself.*

* This work(a project?) began a long time ago. In a way, through this project, I have experienced what many have experienced during the pandemic – the constant uncertainty on whether the event will eventually occur. I often thought that maybe this project’s fate was never to be staged. Maybe, like Master and Margarita by Bulgakov( ah, that would be such a compliment!), it is doomed never to be staged but to remain alive only in my imagination. Perhaps this is the only way it can be true to its first intention? I became so attached to that location that I felt broken-hearted. I am in grief.
Could a theatre be where the work suppose to land? Is it its logical destination? Would this project finally end, locked up in the walls of the theatre?
How ironic. While rehearsing with Dudu and Gio, I imagined the work to take place in a theatre. It made so much sense. But now, I am uncertain. What is that space that the work needs to inhabit? – Katja Cheraneva, an entry note 10.02.2022
