Assembly Instructions is a solo performance driven by the desire to question and deconstruct the so-called normative body and the subject on stage. It is a body-based manifesto for multiplicity, a tribute to queer legacy, a quest towards the undefined, abstract of oneself. The body in Assembly Instructions is a constantly evolving, experimenting entity that continually creates itself. Through cycles of dis- and reassembly it sheds its skin to transform feelings and memories related to sexuality and shame, reshaping them into a new experience of the self. In a play between the sensual and the abstract, the erotic and the absurd, the intimate and the obscene, it seeks fullness in the incomplete.
Assembly Instructions is a restaging and development of Vidan's choreographic research GLASS, which was presented at Tanzfabrik in February 2020.

The project is funded by the Berlin Senate of Culture and Europe and co-produced by Tanzfabrik Berlin. It is supported by Vierte Welt, Yasmeen Godder Studio, Kelim Choreography Center and The Israel Lottery Council For Culture & Arts.

Nir Vidan is an interdisciplinary performance artist based in Berlin and Tel Aviv. Since he graduated his studies at HZT-berlin in 2015, Nir has created several independent choreographic works, parallel to his ongoing collaboration with other choreographers such as Isabelle Schad, Clement Layes, Yasmeen Godder, Laurent Goldring, Miriam Jacob and others.
"The ground for my choreographic work is the articulation of a subjective body presence and the way its singular identity is unfolding through time in a performative state. This is my personal exploration as a choreographer, and my interest when working with others as an interpreter. Side by side with that, I am engaged with learning and decoding the structural violence of our time and I perceive my artistic work as an opportunity for an alternative and critical action and community life."
