NUKKA theater is an independent art collective project. A Collaboration of two women:
Marcelina Bożek - theatre instructor/pedagogue, actress, performer, cultural manager
Kristin Brechler - theatrologist, performer, acroyoga instructor, physiotherapist
Marcelina and Kristin have met in 2015 in Berlin at the physical theater training studio and have been working together since then. They perform on the stage together and run plenty of different theater workshops, classes, performance projects, trainings....
As a team they improve contact improvisation dance and elements of acrobatics. They simply share the creative development and artistic work. They collaborate with Instant Theater Berlin, Die Etage - school for performing and fine arts, Tatwerk - Performative Forschung (a theater, dance and performance studio)
Their interest as artists is to break the rules of typical dramatic theater by implementing physical theater methods to the stage work process. They also hope to expand the sensual perception as an actor in the theater space. They both strive to seek the sensitivity of our bodies, abolish our cultural habits and work from the mindfulness of the body. Simply, to focus the energy on our bodily carnality. They enjoy working with movement, music, rhythm and acrobatic gestures. Both of them practice physical theater methods, contact improvisation and contemporary dance.
There is no theater!
NUKKA (from the Albanian language)its negation and reversal, it is a contradiction - denia - zeroing. It's like giving something away, rather than taking it, it forces to facing obstacles rather than looking for comfort. It is an organic empty space and a "not knowing" child's mindfulness...
Its lack, emptiness, nothingness, tabula rasa, demolition, deconstruction, reversal...
When you have nothing, you can start. Transparently.
Follow us and our statement. We dedicate our theatrical experiences and development specially to the body//sensuality// motion ....
LET US RUN OUT OF AIR
There is no theater!
