LeibBeiMir| |BodyByMe

Fake it till you make it baby. But what if you can’t make it? Fake fur, fake news, fake body, fake accounts, fake friends, fake feelings, we each have moments of fakeness.

LeibBeiMir| |BodyByMe presents moments where theatrical masks are broken to reflect the fact that we are all, audience and performers alike, in a constant cycle of faking it. With movement, light, scenography, text and a live electronic music set, LeibBeiMir| |BodyByMe instigates situations where faking it is no longer an option, thus revealing an authentic moment of performance. 

In the last semester of their two-year master's programme, the seven students of the MA Choreography at the HZT Berlin will present their final projects in the Uferstudios and on the stages of the Hochschule für Schauspielkunst Ernst Busch. The international students come from Iran, Finland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany and the USA and everyone brings an own artistic signature and approach. The performances conclude a research and rehearsal period lasting several months, during which the students have dealt intensively with their individual questions and themes.
