We are here, together. We are somewhere else, alone. Between the here and now of community and the vastness of being alone, In Return takes place. The work began as an exploration of paradise as a special place: space before the separation of body and environment, of life and death, of the divine and the earthly. Paradise is the origin of all living things and inaccessible to all living things. All species are united in it and each enters it alone.
In Studio 5 of the Uferstudios, the artist and choreographer Moritz Majce creates a flowing togetherness with five dancers. Movements that relate to each other and to the visitors create an environment that passes through the bodies.
In spaces around the Uferstudios, the artist and author Sandra Man shows four videos, shot in remote landscapes with one dancer each. The individual human body connects with its environment, dives into it, steps out of it.
The visitors move freely between the live installation and the image spaces. They create their own dynamic of coming together, parting and returning.

Moritz Majce is a visual artist and choreographer. For him, the encounter between the work and the viewer is the essential artistic material. Since 2019, he has been developing Relational Flow, a space-creating form of movement that connects visitors and performers.
