Tourist - a de-centred play

The English-German co-production ‘Tourist – a De-centred play’ brings slapstick, loud costumes, impossible magnetisms and large black holes onto the empty space of a stage. ‘Tourist’ is a strange visitor to the world of
contemporary dance. Three performers invade theatres, audiences, impossible landscapes, imagined territories with humour and resilience, finding themselves out of place and unsettled. Tourist invites the imagination of the audience to colour in what can’t be seen. Since 2008, Gabriele Reuter is developing Solo works that investigate the development and exchangeability of imaginary and real spaces. ‘Tourist – a de-centred play’ is a first translation of this research into a group process.
