Yuko Kaseki + Contagious
Yuko Kaseki (JP/DE) – dance

Sabine Ercklentz (DE) – trumpet, electronics
Andrea Neumann (DE) – inside piano, electronics
Mieko Suzuki (JP/DE) – turntable, electronics

For the first time, Yuko Kaseki and the trio Contagious perform together.

Yuko Kaseki is a Butoh dancer, choreographer and teacher based in Berlin since 1995. She studied Butoh dance and Performing Art at the HBK Braunschweig with Anzu Furukawa and danced in her company Dance Butter Tokyo from 1989–2000. In 1995, Yuko Kaseki and Marc Ates founded the dance company cokaseki, which is as an ensemble for performative research around dance, visual arts and experimental music in live events and improvisation at theaters, galleries, site specific spaces, and film. Since then, various members have been part of the group in different roles and changing creative responsibilities. Her works are accumulations of poetic and vivid images that incorporate the spirit of Butoh, and her performance aims to reflect outsider’s existences. Yuko Kaseki was an artist fellow at Interweaving Performance Culture, International Research Center, Freie Universität Berlin, 2012–2013. She is a lecturer in contemporary dance and butoh worldwide.

Contagious are Sabine Ercklentz, Andrea Neumann und Mieko Suzuki. The Trio was founded in summer 2018, and creates a constant tension between club-oriented danceable and experimental music. The turntablist Mieko Suzuki has been active in Berlin’s club scene since many years and hosts the collaborative, multidisciplinary music event Kookoo at OHM Berlin among others. Sabine Ercklentz and Andrea Neumann belong to the innovative voices in the experimental music scene in Berlin. Together, through mutual contagion, they seek to discover new aesthetic spaces. They plunder each other’s musical spheres, appropriate them and switch roles: in fragile sound textures pulses become audible. Groovy beats implode in noisy fragments, which grow to a trance like stream. Autonomous sound becomes danceable – beats become transparent.


Admission: 12 / 10 / 6 Euro (normal price / reduced / Berlin-Pass)

Moderation: Mathias Maschat

The Denkraum series Sound & Lecture combines the presentation of an artistic project with an artist talk moderated by Mathias Maschat. Guests are Nicola Hein, Christian Grüny, Simon Rose, Claudia Schmitz and Maria Colusi with Aspect Seeing – An Artistic Re-Reading.

The philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein described the nature of our perception, to understand a word, an image or a sound in context, as ‘aspect seeing’. The interdisciplinary project Aspect Seeing – An Artistic Re-Reading starts with this phenomenon. Music, philosophical text, dance and video meet each other and meet in improvisation. Aspect seeing, as well as the associated ability of aspect change, is reflected artistically and philosophically on several levels. One of the concerns is to question the potential of Wittgenstein’s engagement with perceptual psychology and construction of meaning in a reinterpretation by the arts, in their interaction and relationality.

The performance is the start of the symposium Sinn und Präsenz in Improvisation.


Admission: 12 / 10 / 6 Euro (normal price / reduced / Berlin-Pass)

19 h: soundwalk with Thomas Gerwin
