“Die Schwalbe des Jahrhunderts”

is a workshop in which the participants learn to train the perfect dive. The workshop consists of four acts: the simple fall backwards, haunting in packs training, the shoulder-to-shoulder training and convincing the referee.
For this occasion Sandra worked together with a personal trainer and an actor. The personal trainer helped analysing and deconstructing the fall whereas the actor was responsible to train the theatrical part of a dive. How does body language and facial expression work when one performs an accident that is not an accident but an act of performance?
The issue of fairness in sports is raised and through the playful and active workshop the participants discuss fair play but also the meaning of winning and loosing in a football match and life in general.
The workshop is a continuation of Sandra’s practice that looks at the various meanings of falling, personal dreams and the notations of a successful life.
