The exchange between two adversaries starts with thuds (here: tennis or badminton serves), they are the thuds (here: hits) that happen at the fall, and the thuds (here: the raising of the eyelids that open the game of seduction. But here the body doesn't encounter or achieve anything but its self: vertically (thuds). It continues hopeless of recapturing a day: horizontally (canon). The arms, the legs, the head, the face, and the skin come face to face and enter into contact in a corner of the room. This installation video has two canons, Aufschläge – Kanon was first presented in the framework of the audiovisual project "In der Gnade der Strafe sein" by Christoph Ogiermann (composition) and Daniel Kötter (video).
