A nomadic performance process revolving around storytelling of mature participants, and the construction of homes, questioning risk and comfort zones within the museum.
The Living Room is a nomadic performance process, an exploration and an expansion to spaces in the museum, interacting with them through a symbiosis.
Our group consists of mature participants, with whom together we aim to construct intimate safe zones inside the Humboldt forum – homes which embody their individual fantasies and needs. We wish to make an experienced body, which has a history and stories to tell, present and moving in the museum, underlining the connection between the past and a tangible future.
We build our home
We are the wild
into a possible future
Home as a reflection of a safe zone. How can we create a vulnerable and brave space inside the museum, which is designated for the construction of each individual’s home, within the conditions and discourse of the HtF?
mature performers as storytellers in the museum. Can a body of a person, especially one that is mature and experienced, be a vessel of sharing history and memories, and influence the course of our future through a performative act?
re-defining physical comfort in relation to social change. Can we, through facilitating a journey which confronts our body with its possibilities and limitations, shake our rigidness, and encourage a constant flux in a society which follows ideals of comfort, fixation and security?

Marie Hanna Klemm
born 1992 in Wuppertal, is a Berlin-based dancer and choreographer who holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in dance and choreography from Folkwang University of the Arts.
She has worked with Tanztheater Wuppertal, Pina Bausch, Johannes Wieland, Henrietta Horn and Jakob Ahlbom and is currently collaborating with Yotam Peled & The Free Radicals, Jann Gallois -CieBurnOut, Jill Crovisier -JC Movement Production and João Cidade, among others.
Working on the border between theater and dance, Marie continues to break new grounds, both within and outside of herself. Deepening her identity as a performer, she actively creates and tours her own work. In 2019, she won the 2nd Jury Prize for her creation -one more drama- at the Gdanski Festival Tanca Solo Dance Contest.
Investing in the space between intuitive senses, natural instincts and the rational mind, Marie sees movement practice as the key to opening channels to the body’s subconscious and uncovering the creativity and knowledge that lies beneath. Her artistic approach seeks to better understand and make tangible complex structures of human behavior and hidden emotional patterns by providing space for honest sharing, vulnerability and empathy.
