World Première: 28th of February 2013

A syncopation is the moment of pure emptiness and fullness at the same time. The room fills with fleeting movements - a constant giving and taking between presentation and environment begins. Also the thoughts, empty and meaningless, but after all strangely present go into a permanent exchange. An invisible promise of the moments infinity starts to pioneer.

Synkope. Created out of an improvisation of Murat Alkan and Jan Möllmer the work changes in every performance with room and audience.

A film adaption of this work was released in 2014 in collaboration with Simon Baucks.
