an event series for performative spaces
ROOOMS is a four-part series of events in various Berlin venues and formats, generating spheres of experience beyond the traditional, performer-oriented theatre context. Initiator Mirjam Sögner collaborates with a different choreographer on each edition.

In ROOOM #1, we devoted ourselves to fleeting and fragile atmospheres by zooming in on nothing less concrete than all forms of minerals - creating a space that seeks to gently make the elusive tangible, and the dense matter malleable.
We ask how something intangible like an atmosphere can take root in a body and vice versa how atmospheres can be grasped or even changed.
The visitors are guided through a parkour in which they encounter various materials, traces of previous participants and texts in order to react and continue to weave the space and its composition.

ROOOM #2 was dedicated to transformative encounters with one another.
Questions to fall in love, techniques on how to tap into energies in the room and consciously working with them, remotely controlled cars chasing each other though the space and many more playful instructions will create bubbles of intimacy with oneself, others and devices. ROOOM #2 is a space to meet in unordinary ways, to create closeness with what and who feels strange or unfamiliar.

ROOOM #4 is a choreographic journey co-created by Marta Navaridas and Mirjam Sögner taking place in the belly of a historical boat located on the waters of River Spree right in the heart of Berlin.
The floating vessel is our point of reference when we are out on the shape-shifting waters, detached from the specificity of location.
A tin box that allows us to travel over unspeakable depths, to inhabit the IN-BETWEEN and provides just enough safety to travel the unknown.
In ROOOM #4 we will enter the ship to lose our sense of orientation and to discover a different set of coordinates.
A fire for example - that will be the center of our gathering on a cold November evening. How could we become each others travel companions navigating the always-transitory and the powers of our own unconscious watery depths.
Or let’s become a ship of fools all together. Unpredictable. Anchoring in the darkness of the margins into strange songs, drawings and letters.
