My project B.O.D.Y., came from my experience, when I spent time with disabled performers for the projects, we worked together for the theater productions. It was a real story from them about their life under the fascist conditions until 1990 in Germany. The sound work was based on their stories, I created as a sonic fiction.
Thikwá the theme such sexuality, falling in love, make love, and wishing to have a baby, was not taboo.
For example, it came out (harmonized with) a lesbian (homo-gender) couple (both had the spasm), for them, were important this love-relationship for knowing own and other body. In my artistic group with disability performers, and each of them could express sexuality, love, relationship, occupation and intervention, jealousy, sexual abuse, communication, autonomy and free will, an organization such as living separate and working collective in each artistic ability practically and individually.
It came out (harmonized with) a hetero-gender couple (one had the spasm, and one had a mental disability) in my artistic group with disability performers, also same the case of a lesbian couple, as well as the theme of wishing baby, idea of life and also prevention of by the self-control includes relaxing at the intellectual level. They were not child, were over 30 years old, and adult. One of them, I wanted to give the chance to study (disability study) at the University, in Germany, it was still early stage.
She had a very sad experience with her father in childhood, due to her disability. She was born in the Ex-DDR, and she was trapped in the basement and beaten (punished) with a whip by her father with the belt of his pants (trousers). She dead before finish this work B.O.D.Y., includes her parts, we worked together in the projects. She could not see and listen this installation.
Another performer was in psychiatry in (West) Germany, and he had the treatment of the electric chair. (Their experience in the 1970s–1980s) They were younger than me.
Nevertheless, my hope was the young generation of people with disability, their life was in the guideline of humanity, family, integration, fairness also for the immigrants. Some of them were binational and linguistic, such as German-Cuban, German-Russian, he could speak German and Spanish, and as well as English. He had the mental (geistig) disability through genetic disorder. Nevertheless, please don't misunderstand, he has a genetic mental disorder since he was born, he has not mental illness as ein geistig Behindert (disability). - Difference between genetic disorder and mental illness. There is new definition in the 21st century. Community, mobility, self-organising includes time-coordination, catch the timing, time perception, as well as orientation from their perspective and norm. (They had a mobile phone and could call the taxi for the disability.) Thereby the notion of society, health care, job, life plan, and so on were my norm. Even if a performer with autism, she could coordinate by herself through her will.
