Workshop, Performance, Symposium
Whether walking together or on our own, we are always synchronizing and desynchronizing: swinging limbs, adjusting muscle tone, heartbeat, breathing… Our bodies are defined by a multiplicity of rhythms, which permanently influence each other. If we look closer into the seemingly simple movement of walking, we discover a rich polychronicity and various forms of mutual attunement.
In a five-days workshop, an open-air performance, and a two-days symposium, artists and scholars from different fields will explore the dynamics of walking in respect to rhythmical self-organization. What are our techniques, our cultures, our ecologies, our politics of walking?
TAKE US FOR A WALK is a collaboration between DFG-Schwerpunktprogramm “Ästhetische Eigenzeiten” + Freie Universität Berlin, Institut für Theaterwissenschaft, Zentrum für Bewegungsforschung, Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin, Universität der Künste Berlin, Hochschule für Schauspielkunst “Ernst Busch”, Tanzfabrik Berlin e.V.
