Knives and other sharp objects
Knives and Other Sharp Objects are obviously very dangerous for our soft skin and fluid fleshy bodies. That makes them so exciting to play with. There is real danger of cutting or scratching yourself or others, so better watch out. We will try out knives and other metal objects, as well as broken glass, thorns and whatever we can find that is solid, sharp and pointed. Playing with these things needs a cool head and controlled movement, it trains precision, attention and care. We will see how that will make us feel.
Bring your favourite knife, if you have one, or another sharp object...
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.
