We are a melange. We are grandma-mother-child mixtures. Blutbuch (Bloodbook), which was awarded both the Swiss and the German Book Prize in 2022, is Kim de L'Horizon’s inventory of the fears and ascriptions that seep into our physical memories via cells and narratives to congeal into incontrovertible norms. That which was never said – whether by shame or hypocrisy – must be spoken in order to break the culture of silence. In her first guest appearance in Vienna, German director Leonie Böhm picks up on this topical novel in a colourful, inflatable landscape of rivers, trees, roots and stones. In a collective artistic process with Kim de l’Horizon and four further actors on stage, something new grows out of the Bloodbook: the Bloodpiece. Isn’t that which joins us the very thing to bring movement into paralysis?
