First paint a cage
With an open door
For the bird…
Jacques Prévert, „How to paint a portrait of a bird“
What was left for you? What do you have now, what is left when you leave? In Habseligkeiten #1 (belongings #1), stories of encounters with people condense in situations between "not yet" and "not anymore", in Berlin, Montreal and the camps of Qushtapa & Kawergosk. The collective around Sandy Schwermer plays with things, instruments and images. Is there a common formula for happiness?
What is the German enjoying? Where is the wealth of the cosmopolitans, the Germans, the refugees in a city like Berlin? Habseligkeiten #1 (Belongings #1) is the first part of the series of performances and puts the magnifying glass on "to have" and being "happy" about it. The performances result from meetings with people who helped to shape the project.
