The workshop focuses on proposing tools and games for movement improvisations and real time compositions in public spaces. It takes place partially inside a dance studio and partially in the streets of Leipzig. The participants should be able to follow rules, tasks and previously rehearsed movement diagrams to make instantaneous collective interventions in the public sphere, interacting with pedestrians, architecture and unforeseen situations.

Workshop Language: English

The dancer, performer and choreographer Dani Lima has created her company in 1997.

CONFERENCE
The event will enhance the exploration of movement and dance in the urban space of Leipzig with its different layers of historical experience, in particular of the two German dictatorial states. Main topics will be the relationship between everyday movements and urban environment, and the production of spaces for public action by means of performance, dance and choreography.

Walks, audio-guided tours, site-specific performances and processions are planned to stage places of high political and cultural interest in an unconventional manner. Closely related to these activities an international conference with lectures, panels and working groups will reflect current discussions about dance, movement, public sphere, urban development and interventionist practice.

The city of Leipzig with its various sites of German and European history will not only be the venue, but also the subject, material and medium of this event. The Central Theatre will serve as a base station, where plenary meetings, working groups and performances take place. A lounge will offer some means for further research (movies, maps, books etc.), the possibility to register for audio-walks or just hang around and meet people. In the afternoon there will be guided tours starting from the Central Theatre into three urban regions: The inner City on the first day, the South on the second (Old Exhibition Site, Monument of the Battle of the Nations, Connewitz) and the West on the third day (Sports Forum, Lindenau, Cotton Factory). The idea is to link the places that are relevant for the issue of movement in urban space with political and cultural events, by performance activities that are reflecting and also working on urban structures.

A preliminary phase of extensive research provides information related to several possible subjects (e.g. sports events, urban music and dance cultures, expro¬priation/re-appropriation, monuments, passages/arcades, surveillance, underground, waste land, demonstration, breakdance, parkour, etc.). The artists are invited to pick these information up, spread out across the City and do their own research on the parameters by which movement and behavior in urban space are conditioned. Aesthetic experiences shall intensify the percep¬tion of invisible, lost or long forgotten contexts. At the conference these experiences will be discussed in work¬shops and working groups. The exchange of local, national and international artists and institutions will make this event important far beyond the City of Leipzig.
