In the beginning of 2013, I joined Geheimagentur/Random People for two weeks at the Hamburg spring fair (Hamburger Dom). Up to 7 shows every day were put up in front a diverse audience by performance artists, stage magicians and entertainers in an ancient stage wagon. For AKTION // ATTRAKTION I created several miniature performance acts, partly based on magic tricks or Fluxus scores, for two stage characters named Zaubertrixi and Fuchs der Hase (fox the rabbit). The amount of repetitions allowed for a serious elaboration of aspects such as timing, variation and interaction. Some of these acts were repeated and further developed in the context of Burmester&Feigl's Hermetischer Garten at Sophiensaele Berlin, half a year later.
