Meanwhile the genesis of MANkind gradually becomes apparent during an extensively performance, and with it also its circular ruins. The performance Lift and Carry creates an expanded field of conflicted relations and movements oscillating between starting point and ending point, birth and death. Staging an over layering of references (i.a. the poem The Decent by William Carlos Williams, The Circular Ruins by Jorge Luis Borges, Ich hab im Traum geweinet by Heinrich Heine, The Four Worlds of Kabbalah) and crossing experiences, the performance also asks: What is it like to be alive? What is it like to feel our senses? What is it like to die?
