»I fell in love with three stunt performers. I write them love emails. A while later, I am standing in Alister’s garage. It is padded with red mats. It is where Alister trains me. At the time, I am haunted by dreams about slamming on my back. I think: I’m afraid of falling. As long as it is no longer entirely true.« 

David Attenberger and Anna Kirstine Linke follow their fear and joy of falling and failing. They fight their way through stunt training in Real Life on the internet to the edges of Google Maps. They fall in love with people who have disappeared without a trace. If they are at a loss, they start with their love, and if you find that cheesy, cling to this ↗.

Anna Kirstine Linke is an author, director and body worker, who loves biographical works, participatory (rest) formats and jam sessions. 

Baby David Attenberger is a performer and actor who loves eye contact, urban dance and written speechlessness. 
Both grew up in the Ruhr region of Germany and met 23 to 28 years later in the rain at the Zurich University of the Arts. They fell in love with Bas Jan Ader, the power of vulnerability and Spotify playlists, and were invited with these things to the Körber Studio Junge Regie in 2022.
