"TANZ MICH FREI!" (literally "DANCE ME FREE!") is a site-specific video installation that I created for Theaterladen Schlachthaus Theater Bern. Four videos are projected on one of the windows. They are recordings of dance performances in the show room I made prior to the exhibition. You can see four films of me dancing to headphones music, each with me having a different body part fastened by a rope. This restriction provokes a funny yet grotesque shiftlessness which is even reinforced by the fact that passers-by can activate the films individually by pressing buttons and thus make me dance.
