In January 2019 deufert&plischke start to work towards their new creation Liebestod that will premiere at Tanz im August 2019 later in the year.  Like in their previous projects the aim is to work artistically with a focus on opening up communal involvement and mutual transference of artistic tools. Therefore the project starts by inviting  people to a series of free public workshops. 
Interweaving choreography, music, film, and location specific field work the project’s focus is on the subject of catastrophic love. deufert&plischke will look at love not from the angle of happy endings, but where it is prohibited, where it hurts. Everybody has a personal fucked-up love story, a story one is ashamed of, a story of active or passive violence, a story that is haunting, where one is not the victim, but the wrongdoer.
As a field research there will be three public workshops to gather material, but to also introduce into the work methodologies of deufert&plischke. The workshops are free of charge, registration is required. The workshop participants will be mentioned in the project documentation and also receive free tickets for the performances in August.
