Sunny Pfalzer & Friends
Hold A Ghost

“Hold a ghost and never re-dance history in 2053.” In the site-specific choreography “Hold a ghost”, Pfalzer, Ronald Berger, Marie Carangi, Olivia Hyunsin Kim, Rebecca Korang, and Billy Morgan explore the historic district of Friedrichstadt in Berlin and address personal as well as collective stories and monuments in order to investigate imperialist and colonialist gestures manifested in urban architecture.

Sunny Pfalzer *1991 is a performance and visual artist. In their work, art and activism flirt with one other, initiating temporary collectives that cuddle in the street. Their methodology builds on embodied and representative attributes of protests and on the possibility of turning “being together” into a tool for empowerment. Through performance, video, and textile sculpture, Sunny investigates the strength and perils of anonymity, communal bodies, and collective identity in public space and ways in which we can embody sensitive ways of relating to our surroundings, informed by their political and historical complexity. Sunny studied fine arts in Mexico City and Vienna. They live and work between their hometown Ternitz, Vienna, and Berlin. Sunny Pfalzer’s work was recently presented at KW Berlin, Shedhalle Zurich, and Les Urbaines Lausanne. They had been active in activist groups such as Do Demo and Burschenschaft Hysteria and have also collaborated with Isabel Lewis and Young Boy Dancing Group.
