Los† Ninjas (2013 – 2019)

LEA KIEFFER A.K.A SUE-CIDE & ROCIO MARANO A.K.A CAT NINJA

We are all fictions, we are made of other fictions, we need to acknowledge these fictions in order to make new ones.

Los† Ninjas are characterized by illustrating two histrionic ninja-characters with a symbiotic relationship, an intensive physicality and a DIY spirit. The practice goes from hands-on work with the material of the body and remind us our own survival skills. Through sustained “sci-fi” exercises, they form they own myths and ways of moving in the world.

It is when the inner ninja is awaken that the space is ready to be shaped by the continuous encounter of mystical beasts. Games are made from rules, but rules are made from gaming, too. What is confusing and burning is also exhilarating, a matter of trust, of being in the world, a longing for cinematic moments, a longing for a new beginning every time, to start from scratch and from scratching.

Los† Ninjas Practice was born in 2013 when Lea Kieffer (aka Sue-Cide) and Rocio Marano (aka Cat Ninja) physically crashed into each other pulled by their obsessions of bodies colliding, flying and landing, quirky moves and fantastic storytelling. Since 2016, Los† Ninjas are sharing their practice through workshops and Performances: P-Bodies Dance and Performance Festival Leipzig, SMASH Berlin, Katalyst Festival Cologne, Bienal de Performance Buenos Aires, Intensive Workshops in Buenos Aires, Mar del Plata, Amsterdam, Freiburg, Brussels, Copenhagen, Leipzig, Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin, LaMama New York, Handy Jam Detroit, Love-in Toronto, FTA Montreal, Dock11 Berlin, Waking Life Music Festival, Portugal.

They have created several pieces and performed together: Pink Blue Martini (2013), Ibiza Labour Camp (2014), Ibiza Revenge (2015), The Genesis of the Ninjas / Drawing the Mandala (2015), Matter of Blood (2016), Insanity Solo (2017), Los† Ninjas on the Road –On Travelling, espionage and finding alternative paths (2018), Blind Date Literally (2018).
