This work is an investigation of the relationship between the object (installation) and the body, through an artificial space built to disorder the body and the movement. The body, the movement and the objects as unreal and irregular constructions that cannot be defined but can be seen.

An open rehearsal by and with Martha Hincapié Charry and Fadi Waked.

Forced displacement worldwide at its highest in decades. War, violence and persecution have uprooted more men, women and children around the world.Two dancers from Syria and Colombia meet to have a dialogue about conflict, bodies, movement, tension, displacement and surviving.

A space will be occupied by a coexistence of practices, of bodies, and of knowledge. Together they will become an occupation, a statement of labour. In the collective work of Kimberly Kaviar an archive has been built, a retrospective on that archive will be shown as an ecosystem of all those things humans do to keep themselves busy.

SOMETHING by Constanza Macras

In SOMETHING Constanza Macras invites dancers living in Berlin, all women to question the nature of performance: the “to do nothing performance”, the “do to much” , the “why do you dance ?”, “why to dance in dance? in a piece ?” An examination of performative currents and an attemp to seach honesty in performance.

INSTALLATION & PERFORMANCE

SIESTA by Mey Seifan

We all dream in our sleep. But how do we experience dreams when they arise in a temporary space or in temporary situations? For example, in prison or in a refugee camp, in no man’s land, or even in a tent? Perhaps even a city of tents, a city of materials? In the war in Syria cities were destroyed. Their inhabitants are fleeing and building new tent cities – hoping that this is only temporary. But after six years, they still live in this textile cities, which symbolize their hardships, hopes and dreams.

Since 2011, the Syrian choreographer and theater artist Mey Seifan has been collecting the dreams of Syrians in her “Dream Archive”. From the more than 300 collected tales so far, she created in 2013 the choreographic trilogy “Destruction for Beginners.”
