caprice

Event director and co-foundress of the xplore Berlin, together with Felix Ruckert.

After a work-related break now she completes the team again and keeps the threads together in communication between the presenters, media and staff.

Caprice is a moving person, a researcher and traveler in terms of movement and is able to look deep into the souls of human beings. This curiosity brought her more than 10 years ago to Felix Ruckert and his work.

She loves the xplore Festival and the people there!

delta® is a dance performer, choreographer, art director, lighting-, stage- and S&M-artist.
 
After initial autodidactic experiments with the German expressionist dance of the 1920s, he devoted himself to the Japanese Butoh dance and founded in Berlin in 1988, the first German-Japanese dance company: tatoeba-THÉÂTRE DANSE GROTESQUE with Minako Seki and Yumiko Yoshioka.
 
In 1998, he started to devote himself to interactive dance (ritual feet washing) and met through that Felix Ruckert with whom he teams up since 2000. At first he worked as a dancer in several interactive performances and till now also as the administrative head of the Xplore-Festivals, schwelle7 and of the non-profit association Compagnie Felix Ruckert Berlin e.V.
 
His many years of private S&M-disposition got in collaboration with Felix Ruckert a new dimension: sadomasochistic rituals developed into an art of sensual communication with artistic and philosophical approach. As a presenter at the Xplore-Festivals he is in particular trying to give an understanding of the spirituality behind BDSM as a love play. In his "white" S&M rituals artistic expression and loving devotion merge with the imparting of an intense "pleasure-pain-feeling" for the body and a liberating catharsis for the soul.
