TEA CEREMONY AT NOISES PLAY SPACE by Andy Buru and Natasha
A Perversion of Tea
Pouring water. Soaking leaves. Bowls are handed out to the awaiting guests. Ceremonially rotated to mark a rite of passage. Over and over. It requires a special kind of bravery and dedication. Yet it’s mere improvisation. What do we make space for in such a delicate practice? A trembling tea bowl on outstretched arms. Undressing a collarbone in slow motion. A drip of drool soaks into the tongue of another. Skin marked by discipline. A painted false face.
A Perversion of Tea is a repetitive sadomasochistic play experience in a sea of silence and noise, directed by Andy and Natasha. Be our temporary witness or get lost for hours, day after day.
TENDERNESS AND VIOLENCE AT NOISES PLAY SPACE by Marina Erler
An art laboratory
Does a kiss stain my skin? How long does a hug last? Will my stare pierce your skin?
The laboratory tenderness and violence seeks answers within each of us. Where do you store warmth, wetness and stickiness? Where do the different kinds of touch assimilate? When do the borders vanish?
The workshop is held in groups of ten.
We will explore in a sequence of games. Each lab takes one hour.
It is not required to do both.
Marina Erler developed this lab for her recent Play „für papa“ in preparation for her actors.
WHITE NOISE MEDITATION AT NOISES PLAY SPACE by Rüdiger Wenk aka Phonoschrank
An acoustic self-reflection
Once a day, we offer a White Noise Meditation.
Perceive all frequencies at the same time.
Balance tensions in the head.
Re-exploring the space after the mediation.
Reflect on yourself.
Finally, concrete acoustic information is absent.
What you “hear” during the mediation is an acoustic self-reflection.
Welcome to the mediation!
