I kill-ill You / 2015 

In her latest work I kill-ill You, Düsseldorf choreographer Karen Boesser examines displacement and self-delusion as a social phenomena. During this performance, Karen propels performers and spectators on a tour of illusion and manipulation, in which she confronts them with various explanatory models and patterns of perception. The audience is challenged to use all their senses to experience the constructs designed by the human psyche to grasp the world around them and how boundaries blur between factual action and mystifications as well as blurring the boundaries between performers and audience.
I kill-ill You reflects the inner processes that are often elusive even for those who are affected. The audience comes in contact with their different perceptions and patterns of explanation and rationalization.

Press review:

Renée Wieder / Rheinische Post
"A man and a woman dancing a duet across the room, but they seem to look each other in vain. In slow motion emphasize Bösser Karen and her partner Kyung-woo Kwon past each other or stare into space, the body devoured as if by chance. In her performance "I kill-ill You" FFT explores the Düsseldorf choreographer Bösser emotional short-circuits between people - the unbridgeable difference between perception and self-perception. A fluent well done / throughly choreographted, abstract sequence of actual states, supported by an atmospheric soundscape of everyday noises.Only inches away from the audience turn both dancers their inside out."
