"Breathing is not just breathing…" says the artist Maren Strack, and presents a performance of electronically amplified breathing sound waves in different variations and modulations. A bandoneon costume winds around her body as an inner breathing column, extending the air sounds into the tonal range, move by move. The choreography increases to a fast beat for a danced staccato solo. It ends abruptly, frozen in a shock-frozen gesture; until new waves of breath bring everything back into motion. The Breathshow – these are astonishing images, breath aesthetics. And an intimate invitation, because breathing reflects the self.
