Flyer Körper der Stadt, Graphic Design: Katharina Bansah

he dance performance KÖRPER DER STADT is inspired by the idea that everyday life in public space takes place as a spontaneous choreographic composition. T

he temporary spaces between the buildings and the streets of the city embody a kind of borderline experience of being in between. They offer seemingly endless ways to walk them. The bodies of the city constantly communicate their posture and attitude through reference points to the environment. When we walk we are moving through a transitory space, we are in transition, moving in a liminal space to get where we want to go. To what extent do our movements through this border area create the city itself? The urban space shapes us, our actions, our decisions and our possibilities. But our movements through the space of the city, these everyday choreographies, shape the city, are the city itself, are the true (living/moving) body of the city. With this project we want to further sharpen our view of the wonders of everyday life and raise questions together with our audience: How do we perceive an aesthetic of the everyday? Or do we miss the beauty of simplicity? How do we orient ourselves in space? What is our relationship with it? Do we feel threatened in some places or where are we safe? How can we perhaps even influence what disturbs or irritates us? Do we walk alone or are we always somehow connected to others?
