The basic nature of a classical duel is honor. It is a moment of intensity with a result which has a fatal end. But of course we won’t go into the whole drama of a duel, but seeing it more as a form of contemporary exchange of methods, concepts and collaborations from which the participants will gain a diversity of practical and theoretical insights which will challenge them to find their own path.
DUEL is mainly to understand as metaphor for collaboration. The participants are invited to experience two extremely different approaches of Performance Art to develop from this artistic dialog of differences a personal next step in ones own performative praxis. Since there is only a metaphoric approach to DUEL we will include the festivals direction ‘poetry’ to work, exchange, research, experiment. The chance of the poetic, metaphoric interpretation of the DUEL is seen as form of orientation and lift the parameters on platform where we are able to formulate something which we don’t know yet. This openness is the way of how we understand the DUEL as direct confrontation with the other in order to create a vivid dialogue beyond the states of knowledge.
