HIATUS - A project on beggars and passers-by

It is a quiet confrontation with our conscience. With the question of whether we really have earned what we have. Whether we could give more. We move through our everyday life. Walk through our city. Suddenly an open hand passes through our field of vision. We become aware of the hand, because the person it belongs to is sitting on the ground. He or she is on a level where we don't expect anyone to be, as the other "upright walkers" stream along with us or past us. This moment, this "excessive second" between perception and the conscious decision to act, that is a "hiatus."

The HIATUS (Latin for „opening“, „gap“) is this extended second in between the perception and the conscious decision to act. The end of a HIATUS is inevitable, but the duration is a small eternity. It is a dynamic moment of cessation. We want to examine this HIATUS more thoroughly. Based on research and verbatim material, as well as personal involvement we create a dance-theatre-performance.
