Luzie Meyer & Friedemann Heckel @ Sweetwater Berlin,
offsite 6150 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, California February 8, 2019 – February 23, 2019

Performance for "How to Show Up?" @ Sans Serriffe, Amsterdam 23rd February 2019


"Die Betrügerin, die Menschenfeindin, die eingebildet Kranke" a performance by Luzie Meyer. Doors at 20:00, performance begins at 20:30
In several letters to the Prince, as well as in his preface to the 1669 edition of "Tartuffe, or The Impostor", Molière declared theatre to be
"nothing more or less than a form of poetry, which ingeniously seeks to reprove men's errors". In so writing, Molière produces both a defense of the play -- which had been censored multiple times --
and a programmatic declaration containing a vindication of theatre's capability to "heal" the social body. Later on, Molière concedes that
"there is nothing so innocent but men can defile it", and (maybe unwittingly) draws a parallel between his art and the notion of pharmakon,
stating that "the art of healing has not seldom become the art of the poisoner".
For a new performance with How To Show Up?, Luzie Meyer produces a moment of self-interrogation, juxtaposing her own poetry with various appropriated excerpts from Molière's "Tartuffe, or The Impostor",
as well as two of his similarly well-known works: "The Imaginary Invalid" and the "Misanthrope".
Meyer's performance will draw on themes in her own poetry like hypocrisy, misanthropy and hypochondria to compose a dialogue with Molière and his characters.
