Recurring migratory birds, the tides, captured sound waves - together with seven artists invited, Miriam Jakob tries out a "thinking in curves” in her current work. She thus continues the artistic research on the question of the (im)possibility of interaction between "human" and "animal" and the at times contradictory levels of relationships that arise as a result of the imposed proximity due to the loss of "habitats". In a laboratory-like, choreographic process, the participants develop their own narratives and (in)habitable suggestions. Between them a sympathetic network of unexpected connecting lines and continuations emerges, a network of almost unthinkable fusions. The Broken Promise undermines the unrealizable access to so-called „nature“, tells of rebellious and strolling female researchers, of collecting and scattering, while alongside shedding a light on the coexistence of the species. Fictional childhood memories, everyday stories and small tales are interwoven with musical algae, nostalgic fabrics and other devices to create a walk-in habitat. The audience is invited to move through this installative, maritime landscape between science fiction, collection of fables and invented myths, to listen to the cuckoo or to the sea grass.
