Pharmakon (it radiates) (Przemek Kamiński / Art Stations Foundation)
Reduction creates oxidation! Following this principle, Przemek Kamiński dedicates his solo performance wholly and completely to the color blue. In art, in antiquity, in dreams, on his bodies and in his life. The audience follows a consistent aesthetic self-experiment and discovers an astonishing amount of diversity. He changes. He shimmers. He disappears. And all of that as a simple blue wonder.
This performance takes place within the scope of Introducing - the newcomer's platform of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival.

The Sophiensæle is one of the most important locations for the production of the independent arts in the German-speaking world. Artists from Berlin, as well as the national and international theater community are invited to produce and present their works here. They are selected on the basis of their artistic concepts, content and working methods. The theater is home to cultural discourse and a vast mix of artistic genres – from theater, dance and music to performance and visual art; which complement each other and enjoy a productive dialogue. Alongside many young artists searching for new theatrical languages and forms of expression, a number of established artists and companies have longstanding partnerships with the Sophiensæle.
