We are all part of the oneiric journey of the majestic Reformationskirche-Moabit.
The journey through the meanders of the “church-ship” becomes a mysterious dream animated by laments, flesh and demons. It brings the “church-ship” to sensorial ecstasy, leading to magical visions and a flight towards unknown horizons.
We can no longer say what is light and what is dark; points of reference fall, the beam of the lighthouse is intermittent, only the vertigo sustains us.
Special thanks to the people of the REFO community who supported the project and replied to the surveys, to Dorothee Beck for her contribution to the dramaturgy with her text “Mein Besonderer Ort”, to Manfred Köhling for his friendly support, to Krista Karttunen for helping in the creation of the props.
