Das Lachen der Antonia Baehr

Film documentary and Lecture Performance

In the film documentary, “Das Lachen der Antonia Baehr”, biologist Silke Kipper brings into view the special value of the stage as a place of laughter research, in mutual exchange with the artist. In the following lecture performance Antonia Baehr refers to her performance “Laugh” (2008), in which she explores this expression as a sovereign entity, in separation from causal baggage; jokes, tickles, narrative, humor looking at the thing itself: the sound and shape, the music, choreography and drama, the rhythm. Laughter as a group phenomenon and simultaneously as an object of empirical examinations reveals a seemingly endless richness of facets.
