How can an archive come alive? Can an archive become a time hole through which we can climb into new futures?

Through friendship and performance games, Salma Said and Miriam Coretta Schulte take us on a journey in their constructed futuristic video world. In a space designed by artist Jasmina Metwaly, between video projections and car tires, they explore the subversive video archive 858 of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution and the potential of choreographic mnemonic techniques. They travel with the audience through times and spaces on the sound of musician Leila Moon. Every evening, they invite a new visitor to share their stage and their archival practice.

Miriam Coretta Schulte, 1987, is a theater maker and performer. She grew up in Frankfurt and studied Performance Studies and Theater Direction in Germany and France, before dividing her time between Switzerland and Egypt. Schulte develops performative settings, lectures and workshops both on and offstage, often collaborating with dancers and choreographers to examine the potential and powerlessness of bodies and their fictions.  Both fascinated by the way we consider the usefulness of bodies and determined to rediscover their lost capabilities, she co-developed “Hack-No-Tech”, a dance technique used to store information in the body through muscle memory.
