mygration beget silk fluegge performance Festival 2016Credit: SILK Fluegge

Migration as a form of multiple affiliation to and identification with life cannot be reduced to a transcultural identity problem. Rather, in a virtual age there is an emergence of complex (dis)information networks, which extend from the virtual into real space and vice versa. The performance piece MYGRATION—beget involves a corporeal dispute on this topic: the body and the soul, which remains in generations throughout its existence and which influences, departs from and invests itself into people’s identities and which repeatedly pours itself into new forms. beget is the first part of the MYGRATION series by SILK Fluegge, which examines the heritage and the aim of places to compress information that needs to be organized in order to create a feeling of security. The fanned out construct of the heritage of four personalities is condensed into a performance using parachute silk to build a pictorial form of the haptic perception of the here and now, which creates a tension between blind flight and down-to-earthness. The venue is a railway station platform: the arrivals and departures; the lingering in the waiting room. It is the snapshot of a thousand possible strings converging by chance that creates a person, their reactions, decisions and the ways in which they act.

Note: Due to nudity the performance MIGRATION-beget Silk Fluegge may offend cultural views.
