Folgen is a 45-minute lecture performance that draws on the existing narratives of video makers found on YouTube to build a multi-layered media landscape of Berlin. The performance which mixes reality with fiction, and is an intertwining narrative about desire. The many individuals involved in the making of the work create the stories told during the performance.
Teran's approach weaves together mapping, literature and live performance, combining fragments of images and sound from YouTube videos with her own narration and using the traces video makers have left in the public sphere of the internet to follow people throughout the city. The german word ‘Folgen’ has several meanings: as a verb it means ‘to follow’, as a noun it refers to episodes, consequences, implications or effects.
