A Tidal Home is a collaboration between Berlin and Hong Kong performing artists, a play about home and climate catastrophe, what it means to decide to leave or stay.
I moved to Hong Kong to write the play from scratch, further developing a method I started with Artes Moriendi (2018), that I refer to – for the moment – as Fictionalisation of the Self, inspired by Biographisches Theater and techniques of documentary theatre. In a series of workshops, the creative team came together to share memories, anecdotes and legends all related to their feeling of being home. From there, a gallery of characters was born that I wove together on the backdrop of a city being flooded.
