The two members of the duo SKILLS, Camilla Milena Fehér and Sylvi Kretz­schmar, summon up a spirit that won't let us be. While preparing this documentary concert performance, the two choreographers and performers interviewed each other but also met with former and current pioneers. What do former Thälman pioneers, the pioneers of electronic music, entrepreneurs working at their own risk, freelance artists, pioneer soldiers, early movers and discoverers in space have in common? The two protagonists lend their voices, their instruments and their machines to the pioneer spirit, grapple with it and become obsessed by it. How could all of this get such a hold on us?
