Tiny OyoUnity @ Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt | Pop-Up-Event: Matagumpay – Draw Me Close

14.Oktober 2023 12:00 - 18:00

Tiny OyoUnity presents: 
Draw Me Close
A performance by: Matagumpay

+++The performances will be held outdoors at 13h and once more at 16h (registration below). The Tiny House is open from 12-18h as an oasis space and quiet drawing area.+++


From late August to mid-October, our Tiny House travels through Berlin districts, engaging interactively with the local community and partners at cultural venues and institutions. Through a diverse range of workshops, the aim is to connect decolonial knowledge and artistic practices with marketing, design, and knowledge dissemination.

Next Stop: @ Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt (Bat-Yam-Platz 1, 12353 Berlin)


Draw Me Close is a multidisciplinary performance combining drawing with dance. It begins as a solo by Matagumpay and then includes the audience as collaborators and performers. First, Matagumpay draws across the paper in weak lines until someone intercepts, initiating the first dance. Charcoal and ink marks are evidence of our shared movement. Many configurations are possible: The audience moves Matagumpay, he move the audience, he step away, the audience move each other- just as long as one person holds the drawing instrument, and someone else moves them. Autonomy, consent, depression, will and desire are all at play, and every dance begins with an inquisitive intention: How can he hold you responsibly?

Tickets: Free admission! | Registration: slot 1 at 13h | slot 2 at 16h
Location: Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt
Bat-Yam-Platz 1, 12353 Berlin
Language: English

Matagumpay is a visual artist and writer making work about queer desire and community. His performances combine storytelling with drawing as an embodied practice. They include: Let Me Be the Rope (Café Karanfil), BESUCH MICH (Haus der Statistik), and Draw Me Close (Oyoun). He facilitates the biweekly Trans BIPOC Writers Group at Casa Kuà. Because it is useful for those who share these identities to know, he is: Filipinx, transmasc, the youngest child in his family.


The project Tiny OyoUnity is part of the initiative DRAUSSENSTADT funded by the Berliner Projektfonds Urbane Praxis and the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Gesellschaflichen Zusammenhalt.
