Reclaiming the live aspect of the Performing Arts in the current times

Mission statement: We are aware that the current times are asking for pausing any process of production and to use this opportunity to reflect, think, listen, observe and eventually make some changes in our lives. But at the same time we know that some artists have an urge to respond to the current events. Since the appearance of the corona crisis we have witnessed how artists are showing their abilities to adapt quickly to new conditions and to continue producing work, especially in circumstances of uncertainty. On one hand, the proliferation of multiple online formats in the performing arts has allowed artists to continue developing their practices and sharing their work with an audience. On the other hand, there are many artists resisting to accept this new reality as normal and feeling unsatisfied digitalizing their practices. This is why with this working group we would like to deviate the attention away from the online formats and to insist on thinking about what are, during these days, the chances for offline formats to continue existing.

This is a personal initiative by Felix Ott and Diego Agulló with the support of Tanzfabrik Berlin.

Les Impredictibiles

Das gemeinsame Interesse, mit unvorhersehbaren Situationen konfrontiert zu werden, brachte die Künstler Corbusier und Felix Mathias Ott zusammen. Nach mehreren Treffen in einem Tanzstudio, in dem sich gegenseitige Liebe, Respekt und ein künstlerischer Austausch entwickelten, beschlossen sie das Projekt „Les Imprédictibles“ zu entwickeln. Die Abhängigkeiten, Anpassungen und Entfremdungen werden zur Inspirationsquelle. Der Versuch, einen Moment… Continue Reading

  Felix’s research began with a recording that had been lost for decades, recently discovered by chance in the estate of Dadaist Richard Huelsenbeck, marked the starting point of the research. The audio captures artist Rafael Montañez Ortiz destroying a piano with an axe at the London ‘Destruction in Art Symposium’ on 10 September 1966… Continue Reading


Felix Mathias Ott whose works seem like a contemporary call to mythology reaches India and meets artists and collaborators in a land where there is no real separation from mythology and reality. Unlike in the West, he finds that Gods and warriors from myths exist in the midst of contemporary day-to day life in the… Continue Reading


Felix and Bahar keep the spirit of being two individuals consenting on certain ways of relating to each other. Within that relation; they are reinventing themselves and create entangled tales through their re-membered bodies. They meet as equal partners in a playground where two bodies are put in an unfurling state. On M.A.R.S, Felix and… Continue Reading


  “M.O.N.D” (Meditation on Non Destruction) is a collective research process on the notion of conflict and parallel reality. We focus on the principles of combat disciplines and techniques for survival tested during real combat and war situations and specifically designed for endurance, effectivity, dissolving tension and redirecting aggression. The live performance is a choreographic… Continue Reading


Die neue Arbeit von Felix Mathias Ott ist mehr als nur eine Nacherzählung der homerschen Ilias: Die Konstrukteure bestimmen mit archaischer Kraft  die Handlung und errichten trojanische Räume. Aus einer Choreografie des Bauens und Zerstörens entstehen suggestive Bildwelten und ein akustisch-visueller Raum, den den Zuschauer dazu bewegt, sich seinen eigenen Sehnsüchten zu stellen. Kollagenartig wandert.… Continue Reading
