“... a seemingly impossible duet ...” - video score based on COMEBACK
The solo COMEBACK draws upon a drag performance that Tubi Malcharzik put on in the gymnasium of their elementary school. In a game of holding on tight to memories and fictionalization, a picture puzzle of queer childhood experiences comes into focus. The video score is not a recording of the original staging, but a possible translation into digital space. It invites viewers to synchronize and imagine a seemingly impossible duet which can never be captured in a photograph.
The video is divided into 3 parts and includes an interactive moment. This requires two different devices, such as a mobile phone and a laptop, to play video parts 2 and 3 in parallel. First, start with part 1 at 03:30 min.
The video score was created as part of the Performing Arts Festival 2020 (Hebel am Ufer Theater, Berlin), was dramaturgically accompanied by Mateusz Szymanówka, was also part of the exhibitions ‘communities across time*’ curated by Eva Busch (July 2021, atelier automatique), ‘Platform Embrace’ curated by Kerstin Möller, Karolina Sobel and Nora Brünger (July 2022, Künstlerhaus Hannover) and WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT? (October 2022, Exhibit Wien).
