SELTEN&SCHÜCHTERN is a story about the beauty of female company and the strength of each individual within an entity. For this project – the first collaboration of Marie Zechiel and Shari Annabel Marks – the goal was to create a space of shelter and tenderness, where every unique personality would become an irreplaceable part of an inseparable organism. It’s an investigation into understanding, loving and supporting each other and oneself free of judgement and comparison. This is explored through the elementary concepts of physical touch and togetherness.
She makes fun of life, where everything is illusion, bringing chaos, storms and freedom, no longer afraid of living and taking chances. Iconoclast and sophisticated she freed herself from the past, like an old woman masked as an infant.

A vertical line that clarifies a thousand questions with no answer about the immaterial side of life. Together they briefly talk, ganz kurz.Marie Zechiel is a concept artist whose main form of expression is movement. that is seamlessly translated into stage, film, photo and performance work. This is the portfolio of Marie Zechiel – Dancer & performer based in Berlin.
