Tabea Martin

The more they are together, the more they feel alone. A performance about the tireless fight that something should happen in life. And the disillusionment that if something happens, then it’s not been the right thing. That the more you want to experience the less you experience. A performance that is trying to understand what drives people and how we can engage. A performance with three people who want to engage together. Who believe in the strength of being ‹together› and who finally fail in that wish or that attempt. Field questions how we connect and communicate with others. It reflects on the impossibilities of these connections. Can one lose her or himself within the group? Can one give up on her or his individual thoughts? The performance shows a mechanism of tragedy and the inability to really meet one and another.


Tabea Martin is a choreographer and performer based in Basel, Switzerland. She regularly collaborates with municipal and state theatres. At Schauspielhaus Zurich, Gorki Theater Berlin, Staatstheater Oldenburg and Theater Neumarkt she worked together with Sebastian Nübling, Elina Finkel and Sibylle Berg. In 2015 she has won the special prize for choreography from Berner Tanzpreise.

Her production ‹Pink for Girls & Blue for Boys› premiered at Tanzhaus Zürich in January 2016 and is currently touring in Europe. Her latest production ‹Beyond Indifference› premiered in December 2016 at Kaserne Basel and is also touring.
