›How to Greet Like a Jamaican: Step 1‹ is the attempt at treating strangers like family. Thanks to his personal immigration background – from Jamaica via the United States to Germany – Zwoisy Mears-Clarke became a choreographer of encounters. He asks: 'What prevents us from encountering each other the way we are?'

Inspired by social practices physically and psychologically inscribed onto the artist while growing up in Jamaica, Zwoisy invites the audience to share a memory from their childhood. The one-to-one performance in the dark uses the body to explore how a relationship can be established, suggested, defined and reinforced. The feeling of security is guaranteed!
