on a traffic island, then in a gymnasium and now in dock 11. johannes wieland continues his faust-award nominated 'removed' series. for berlin's ernst-reuter-square at night, the hall of the kulturhaus dock 4 in kassel and at dock 11 in berlin, he creates an anti-heroine story about speed, terror and transit with a diverse dance ensemble. is our humanity threatening to fly out of the curve because of the fascination for speed, because of the fear of standstill?
