Spaziergang bei Nacht
Spaziergang bei Nacht is a duet by Susanne Songi Griem and musician* Pete Prison IV that addresses the constant alterations of internal set-ups by external circumstances. Inspired by the themes of spring and departure, both performers interpret the complexity of change, solitude, discomfort, and compassion in a green landscape. Alternately, they move between individual improvisation and shared memory.
Susanne Songi Griem combines movement, sound, language, objects, and gaze in her pieces, creating a carefully woven web of diverse elements that enables moments of special immediacy.

Pete is also the co-founder of Perilla – a self-organized zine and association that empowers the visibility and the voice of the Asian diaspora in Austria.
