2022 | Berlin | sophiensaele
A meeting point, a friendship, a secret space where stories of fear, joy and agency are recalled. Cyber Ghosts plays around with the notions of surveillance and control in an ironic, intimate and poetic setting. Kiana and Roham meet online in an environment that feels uncertain, unstable and, at times, threatening. Through dances and songs they explore feelings that have been repressed and stigmatized and develop collective survival strategies. In a space that connects the stage of the Sophiensæle and a rural house in Iran, where Roham lives, somewhere in between delight and distress, they withstand in their glow; for dance that is the poison.
