Berlin, Germany

Urbanism and Embodied Performance

when 5 August 2024 - 9 August 2024
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 500

Berlin, with its rich tapestry of history, culture, and innovation, offers us a unique canvas to explore. During this workshop, you will traverse through different parts of Berlin, both by day and by night. As we wander through the city, we'll absorb the architecture, the people, and listen to the diverse sounds that make up Berlin's essence. Later, back in the studio, we'll embark on a transformative journey, turning our experiences of the urban space into performative forms. As a tool we will use a platform made visible on the floor of the studio and create composition work with bodies and materials. A street art mural might turn into a soundscape, a video or a movement choreography. Through embodied exploration, we'll delve into how we've perceived the city with all our senses - what we've seen, heard, touched, and even tasted. By self exploration, devising group-work and performative tools proposed by the facilitator, you will be able to create your own performative vignette of Berlin.

Times: 10.00-16.00 ( inclusive of a 60-minute break )
(Note: some outdoor trips may take place outside the regular workshop hours)
