The boundary between the mountains and the sea in Unatsura on Tsushima Island, where the Ougon-Oni-Yuri lily used to grow, is a steep cliff. In the mountains, where many deer or wild boars live, there is a risk that the flower will be eaten. The cliffside is the only safe place that the animals cannot reach. For the flower, it is a space between danger and safety. I turned into a leaf of the Ougon-Oni-Yuri lily and walked holding the flower in my hand while looking for refuge on the cliffs of Tsushima.

OFFLINE körper ONLINE
2018, re-worked 2020
The 3,5h long structured improvisation “OFFLINE körper ONLINE” explores the boundaries between humans and technology as well as the digital and analog world in a playful way. Klee is the only performer physically present in the exhibition space and testing possible physical connections together with Merle, who is moving on a large projection. Mischke is only audible as a voice commenting, directing and interpreting the actions. Kuki aka. Mitsuku (the world’s most human-like chatbot with Artificial Intelligence) is in dialogue with Klee via text messages that are visible on a second projection.
OFFLINE Körper ONLINE won the art prize of the city of Neumünster in 2018 and in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic it was re-worked and performed again in 2020 at the Kasseler Kunstverein.
Coralie Merle (CH), Jasiek Mischke (NL/PL) and Mark Christoph Klee (DE) are friends for many years. What all of their works have in common is a sense of comradery. Their bond creates a safe space – made tangible for the audience – from which curiosity, lightness and humor stems. They work collectively since 2018 and focus on dance, spoken and written text as well as visual arts.
With each project they explore a digital or analog performance context or an artistic collaboration which is new to them. Amongst other formats they created long durational performances for exhibition spaces, a full-evening dance piece for the theatre stage, an Augmented Reality project and an interactive website.
The workshop is streamed live at hoop. Raum für Visuelles and participants not in Kiel may take part via Zoom. An Artist Talk with Maque Pereyra follows the workshop. Teilnahme kostenfrei.

The practice of Yoggaton is the intersection of Yoga & Reggaeton. It is a movement practice nourished by spiritual and pleasure activism and perreo to work on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels to decolonize our bodies and challenge binaries.
