“Insomnia”, is a 15min. dance play and was performed during the ”long night of musical theater“, a project of the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music and the University of the Arts Berlin, in February 2010.
A sleepless night which never seems to end. A night like a state of intoxication, of clarity, of repetition, of imprisonment and the freedom within the limitations of one‘s own world. A persoon, spinning around herself, her actions, her thoughts. She is placed in a room, which discribes her living enviroment, respectively her imaginary room. In the middle of this room is a seesawing bed, containing a sleeping place and a playground. In this aesthetic lies an ambivalenc between the state of intoxication and dark thoughts, which never seems to end.
