Taking a private family story and historical event as starting point, Stenke and Pagnes inquire into the recent European history, focusing on the replaced - displaced - in-place body of today. They question how past and present speak to and through our bodies facing current ethical, social and existential challenges. The project investigates the process of acceptance of history and its individual and collective archiving, as well as the concepts of identity and permeability of cultural boarders.
Collaborations with national and international organizations and artists are part of the performance. On stages of the journey, Stenke and Pagnes are accompanied among others by the American sound designer Douglas Quin and German violinist Stephan Knies."
