Performance by Felix Mathias Ott, Bahar Temiz
In the frame of Open Spaces#3-2017

Seeking for a relation beyond narration.

Felix M. Ott and Bahar Temiz keep the spirit of being two individuals con-senting on certain ways of relating to each other. Within that relation; they are reinventing themselves and create entangled tales through their remembered bodies. They meet as equal partners in a playground where two bodies are put in an unfurling state. On »M.A.R.S.«, they examine the conditions of moving together. As instruments of an atypical score, they navigate from one situation to another with a sense of complicity. While waltzing around the walls of intimacy, they create a playground where one can offer one’s self to the other.
