The Home Performance – A Series by MS Schrittmacher

How do we react to the abstract threat of the financial crisis? One of the most incisive phenomena is withdrawing from the public sphere as a an act of protection from the worst elements of the present day. As in the Biedermeier period, our homes have become the center of our lives; the way we live is a sign for others.

Members of MS Schrittmacher have been inviting audiences into their “real” homes since March 2013. It is an exclusive look at single, family and shared apartments, temporary residencies and even gardens. The home becomes a representative of our perspective on the world. It presents our life script. KOMM ZU MIR doesn’t just pose the question of who we are, but rather who we want to be. In an intimate performance, MS Schrittmacher and its guests explore the question of how our living space reflects us in the tension between personality and image. Redesigns are not excluded.

The number of participating performers as well as visitors is variable and depends on the respective scenario. But one thing is clear: the private visits are not just exclusive; the are also unique. And every invitation to eat together always includes an inspiring discussion.

Further performances coming soon…
