Beyond Indifference

Tabea Martin’s work, ‹Beyond Indifference›, questions our perception of truth. What can still be trusted in a world in which we can no longer trust anyone? How do we deal with continually being manipulated?


Two parallel worlds exist on stage. On one side a fantasy world - a concert evening with glamorous, sentimental rock bands named ‹Crystal Eternity›, ‹El Toro Rojo› and ‹Aquarium Lovers› – and on the other side reality, with which the fantasy world is in continuous conflict. We see people who are either thrown into reality or flee from the fantasy world. A continuous interaction, always with different underlying manipulative strategies. People in the room who are sometimes victims and sometimes perpetrators. Who is manipulating whom, and for what purpose? What is the goal? Success? Prestige? A manipulative struggle for attention results in which no one wins.

As in her previous works, choreographer Tabea Martin is always on the search for new content and explores different weaknesses of people in a playful and provocative manner. In her last production, ‹Pink for Girls & Blue for Boys›, a production for children from the age of 8, she addressed the topic of gender. Her pieces ‹Field› and ‹Duet for Two Dancers› deal with the question of what drives people, how individuals can become a collective body and what fears people carry with them about not meeting the expectations of society.
