“Compassion is an unstable emotion. It needs to be translated into action, or it withers. The question is what to do with the feelings that have been aroused.” [Susan Sontag, Regarding the pain of others.]

The performance project ENTER THE MUUVE. delves into techniques of emotional movement as well as the question of whether being emotionally moved can be considered as a solution to deeply rooted, structural problems at all. Based on Facebook videos of animal rescues, several movement strategies and their (mis)success are explored. Three white performers develop a twenty-minute "movement experiment": an attempt to use language and their own bodies to move themselves and the audience for a specific theme. The main focus lies on the search for techniques to generate empathy, which are tried out performatively on non-animal, politically relevant material. The material consists of video reports from the news showcasing white-centrist narratives. ENTER THE MUUVE. offers the opportunity to critically question these narratives and become aware of one's own position.
