I kill-ill You / 201

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.
