Camouflage

<p>Towering shapes staggering in the crepuscule, the stage’s back wall turns into a black hole, a piece of fabric seems suspiciously animate, yet it is hard to discern which bodies actually do house a heartbeat.</p>

“Camouflage” is an ingenious game of hide-and-seek in which the invisible appears and perception is put to the test. Cologne choreographer Özlem Alkis sketches a small world between a joke and an eerie atmosphere, a world in which silhouettes, movement and material constantly reform each other a new, and the four performer’s bodies themselves come under scrutiny. How do we perceive something, and what do we hold to be true? It becomes clear quite swiftly that seeing with one’s own eyes may not be the most reliable source for true facts. Rather, an underground information flow is blooming here.
