Tears of Sadness – Tears of Joy
This is a 90- 120 min score, done in a circle sitting on the floor, with an unlimited number of participants. Biggest I did so far was with about 200 people. The score consists of a series of breathing exercises and collective sounds, combined with elements from Systemic Constellation. It displays emotion as bodymind mechanics: Everyone anytime can be guided into letting tears flow….and it’s fun…

Felix Ruckert (1959) is a German dancer , choreographer , conceptor and author. He has gained international acclaim with interactive concepts such as HAUTNAH, RING, DELUXE JOY PILOT and SECRET SERVICE. These works are characterised by the radicalism of the style, the originality of the content, and the unconventional interpretation of the spectator-actor ratio. He often gives the viewer an active role in the performance and confronts him with intense emotions. For these interactive choreographies he invents special techniques for physical communication and perception and develops them into an art of touch. He currently lives in Berlin and is artistic director of the company Felix Ruckert / Berlin eV, founder and curator of schwelle7, experimental space for dance and BDSM and initiator of the annual festival "xplore", a three-day event on creative sexuality, BDSM, performance and ritual.
