Public discussion following 'Something Happens'
Bringing a theatrical frame to small things that happen in everyday life Evgenia Chetvertkova proposes a way for them to become an event. This performance is created by a number of consistent small tasks/etudes with an open end for a performer, an audience and environment. After the show the audiences are invited to share their thoughts and impressions with the artist.
How does Evgenia Chetvertkova create a net of connections between a performer, an audience and environment? How does she focus attention on an experience? How does it feel to be in performative space? How does it feel when something happens? After the show we discuss with Evgenia Chetvertkova about improvisation, unpredictability and an event.

About the venue
The ACUD Theatre in Berlin's Mitte district has been a place for young, innovative and diverse theatre since 1990, building bridges between acting, dance, performing art, clowning and puppetry. As an independent theatre, it supports national and international theatre pieces by young groups and solo artists. ACUD Theatre organises festivals and initiates multicultural events on political themes, engages with theatre with homeless people, people with handicaps (e.g. for people with sight and hearing impairments) as well as making precarious experimentation possible. Each year around 120 performances take place in the 70-seat theatre, around 90% of them new productions, Berlin premieres or world premieres. There are also readings by authors in the original language and political discussion forums, workshops and theatre sport events.
About the performance
This performance is a net of connections between a performer, an audience and environment in order to create a playground where small events may happen. This performance is created by a number of consistent small tasks/etudes with an open end for a performer, an audience and environment. This is an attempt to merge a happening and a theatrical piece, to create a fluid performative space that is open for occurrences. This piece is designed in order to focus attention on an experience of knowing/not knowing, hope/believe, boredom, mistake, deception and unpredictability.
"Bringing a theatrical frame to small things that happen in everyday life I propose a way for them to become an event. I set up a task for myself to create improvisational movement responses to whatever may happen during the time of performance in order to invite events in my body as a performative space. I invite an audience in a set design with elements of “romantic repairment”, in order to evoke creative, playful and warm space in which we all are going to improvise to some extent." (Evgenia Chetvertkova)
