SEVEN SEALS 
participative performance 

SEVEN SEALS STATEMENT
I believe art and culture are our most important tools to develop conciousness. As such, they are always reflecting on, and interacting with the time and space of their creation. Today we are facing, the human struggle with the contradiction between monotheistic believe systems in a world of multiple perspectives. This leads us to a constant separation of the concepts that effect our thinking on one hand, and our experiences in everyday life on the other hand, and it leads to a separation of spiritual and profan life.  All the human fights of our days are in the end fights with the contratictions within this paradoxon:the obuse of nature, the imbalanced social structures, the religious and territorial fights, as well as deep psycological conflicts, all emerge from this global human confusion. The only conclusion of this paradoxon lays in the experienced UNITY OF MULTIDIMENSIONALITY which can never be understood theoretically, as a thought and the subject of a thought is already a duality. It can be experienced only with all of our being: our physical, mental and emotional abilities. So I  trigger a multimedial, multidimensional, interactive, international and integrating piece of art, that is created in a unity of artist and audience, in a continious flow and in a situation where the audience is not outside the artwork, but moving towards it, in the same time creating and observing communicating with the present particioners as well as the past and future ones.



HOW
artists and audience travel togeter trough 7 spaces with colour and sound of rising frequencys by going 7 times through a 7 meter long tunnel into a space with changing videoprojections. The full SEVEN SEALS project, is a series of 21 performances (3 times 7) the first 7 took place in Berlin gallery art.endart and Uferhallen with fellow artists of different media and audience. Now, in the second stage l travel the world with the tunnel and the input of the former travelers. and realize the performance after a short intoductive workshop, focused on movement meditations. Every performance is a 5 hour trip and a meditative pilgrims journey We all go together, but everybody also has its own internal trip and gets personal letterst from former performers in every space. Every performance is different depending on the particiopants and follows a simple struckture inspired by the vedic philosophy of the chakras..We unite in movement and sound.

TECHNICAL INSTALATION
on the most simple set up, I can even run the p  projections and soundscape allone and only need an AP as l tour with the 7 meter tunnel from power stretch, 2 laptops and my small projector.-Anyway it is much nicer to have another projector and coloured lights as well as somebody to opoerate them, as l am quiet buisy during the act. 3 times already Barnim Schulze from Akasha project did a life concert through the cosmic octave with the performance, wich was amazing..-only he needs to be payed well. In any case I need some manpower to put it up and feel much better, if l can bring my own assistant.. Somone who could also run the sound and music within the cosmic octave life and in tune with the spontanious actions The space should be big enaugh for at least 21 moving people and a 7 meter long tunnel. It can be outside if it is unlikely to rain Pictures: Martin Liebermann
