Ängst Detox (Nazis & Goldmund)
Hydra has left the building, let’s start with yoga and yoga means unity, everyone is one here and one like the other and everyone is just as white, just as pretty and just as thin and no one is none of these, now inhale, exhale, hold your breath and 3 2 1 in and 3 2 1 out, and now fear, 3 2 1 in, now deafness, 3 2 1 out, now indifference, 3 2 1 in, shortly after The Attack in Berlin, Germany, Hydra watched Friends for 48 hours and thought about the 1990s and the gentle beginning of the 2000s and everyone is equally white and equally beautiful and equally thin and everything starts with the theme song oh yeah, I’ll be there for you and Rachel says Chandler says inhale, exhale, Monica says, Joey says: Is this the end of Western civilization here? Ross says: Am I out of my mind? Am I losing my senses? Hydra says: Answer, someone just wants to answer.
Since fear is not a world view, the Nazis & Goldmund performers invite you to take part in a collective FEAR detox: with poetic-political manifestos, anti-fear mantras, restorative motion sequences and shared meditation, we start a fear-free day.
Bring along a list of your personal fears, we will use them in a call and response to make a concert of voices, a giant roar.
Whoever wants to and is able to should bring a small pillow for the meditation and a yoga mat.
++Don’t be afraid, join in!++
Duration: approximately 60 minutes.
Alte Münze: Festivalzentrum, Molkenmarkt 2, Mitte, 10179 Berlin
Nazis & Goldmund sees itself as a multi-headed, poetological monster that critically observes the developments and actions of the right-wing in Europe and their international alliances while examining and attacking their narrative and intervention strategies. The initiators and performers are: Jörg Albrecht, Thomas Arzt, Sandra Gugic, Thomas Köck and Gerhild Steinbuch.
Alte Münze in Mitte has been the home of Berlin’s mint since the 1930s. Here, Reichmarks were printed by the National Socialists, then East German marks, followed by Deutschmarks and euros after German Reunification and the introduction of the euro until the mint was moved to Reinickendorf in 2005.
The premises are currently managed by Spreewerkstätten. Since 2013, they have successively developed various areas in Alte Münze and made them usable. Culture makers, music producers, artists working in all genres as well as art and music festival presenters and social startups realize a wide variety of projects in Alte Münze today in the culture and creative economy sectors and program the event areas.
The future of Alte Münze is currently the topic of active debate by Berlin’s cultural policy makers. In light of this, PAF is even more excited to be able to be a guest here. It allows this much-discussed location in the middle of the city to be temporarily experienced together by audience members and artists.
