Pyromania Vol 2. Ashes and Salt

24. July 21:30h until 23:30h at Lottenhof

The exchange between citizens of once hostile states. A last look at the bustling market before retirement. The deliberate staging of physicality. If we listen attentively to the voices of the past, their echoes can be heard long after the screen has faded to black.

A little fire breaks out in a man’s apartment. He panically tries to call the other inhabitants in the house for help, but nobody lets him speak. Instead he is being happily pulled from one apartment into the next one, making him more and more nervous. Eventually, he runs into the streets and gets into a big group of heady-with-victory football fans.

Essay über ein Fischweib oder Min Herzing

“Min Herzing”, is what fish saleswoman Hedwig Anke lovingly calls her customers. On her last day of work, the 72-year-old gives us an insight into her busy life. Her stories are underlined by private photos of the Baltic Sea, throwing us back to the everyday life of fishermen and fisher “gals” in the North of Germany.
