A duet between dancer and camera is being performed behind a wall. The live-picture is projected to the front side of the wall, allowing the audience to follow the dance only through the perspective of the camera.

»Perzerbst« debates the relationship between the Motif in front of the lens and the camera itself. Both actors only get into a hierarchic relationship through the view of the camera. This is questioned and broken in different ways.

Because of the the partly offensive, partly defensive approach, the dancer’s behavior is either a self-display or a resistance from the voyeuristic view.

»Perzerbst« was created and premiered together with Sylvana Seddig. Another showing took place together with dancer Mariko Koh.
