Every year, over 1000 migrants drown in the Mediterranean. In the meanwhile, Karen decides to rescue a baby skunk lying on the street and names it Gerber. The whole thing is carefully documented and presented in form of a cute Facebook video. The video is shared over forty-six thousand times. \”This story melts my heart,\” Trudy comments. Would the story have melted so many hearts if Gerber had been a migrant? The performance project ENTER THE MUUVE. explores techniques of emotional movement. Three white performers create a twenty-minute \”movement experiment\”: an attempt to move themselves and the audience for a specific, politically relevant topic through language and body.
