Frauen am Herd

2G | Maren Strack in Zusammenarbeit mit Johan Lorbeer (Birkenwerder)  

05 – 06 Feb 2022 | Made in Potsdam 2022Dance / performance

Unfortunately, this show is cancelled!

The cooking show begins – there is Racuchy, polish mushroom pancakes. In her new piece, Maren Strack is less concerned with preparing meals than with kitchen utensils themselves. The performer wears a red apron dress to which the neatly sorted kitchen utensils just stick. A dance interplay between the utensils, the costume and the body is created. Gravity seems to be suspended, the appliances develop a life of their own, fly, hit each other, set the dance rhythm – from pianissimo to heavy metal. In a clanging kitchen sound room, she herself mutates into a grotesque cooking-appliance sculpture. She searches for the parmesan and plays on the sounding cheese grater.

Beforehand on both days:
Done and Dusted / Joshua Rutter
