Residency 12/01/2020 – 01/31/2021
With ›Aller Tage Abend,‹ the Berlin-based performer Martin Clausen and the Bremen-based musicians Christoph Ogiermann and Tim Schomacker begin their collaboration, taking a look at daily life, or rather, daily lives. Everyday artifacts mark the starting point of their research: ›objects trouvées,‹ observations, experiences, and thoughts. Their survey of fleeting genres—from the note book to voice messages—reveals the multitude of forms found in everyday life. ClausenOgiermannSchomacker always work with their own positions and attitudes in mind. They disassemble their material to visual, musical and poetic elements and set off on a search for formal principles that result in and from the daily life.

From 2000 to 2011, he worked as an actor, performer and director with, among others, TWO FISH (with Angela Schubot), and since 2013 he has created productions as “Martin Clausen und Kollegen” at the Sophiensaele, HAU, Tanzfabrik and Podewil (Berlin), the Theater an der Parkaue and PATHOS Munich.
