invites the audience to immerse into an associative and slowed down world, and gives a chance to succumb to a fascination for disasters. SONDER is situated in a non-place, somewhere close to a aerodrome. It is unclear when everything will implode, if it is even going to happen, or if the catastrophe already occurred. In this suspended state of collapse, the two protagonists are looking for safety and happiness within self made and fragile refuges. Surrounded by a disturbing environment, these shelters seem to be islands of supposed blessedness. They create fleeting images and sceneries, plunging themselves into a space of echoes and illusions. SONDER is alarming, instinctive, futuristic and poetic.
«The deep-seated urge to hide underneath things at danger and adversity, artfully staged and impressively performed.
A phenomenological piece of art, minimalistic and yet fantastic: this was SONDER.» Kulturstatt Bern Blog, Urs Rhis
