Lab 1: Remembering the Future

Christina Ciupke, Gabriele Reuter, Anke Strauß

In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2018

A lab with the theme "Remembering The Future" for dance makers and artists of other disciplines working with movement will take place on 16. & 17.7. in the context of the 40th anniversary of the Tanzfabrik Berlin and Open Spaces # 2 / Sommer Tanz der Tanzfabrik Kreuzberg. Various inputs such as, a.o. by Christina Ciupke and Anke Strauss (utopia and memory) and Gabriele Reuter (inter- disciplinary work) will be impulses that invite the participants to a two-day exchange of artistic research and choreographic practice. The aim is to identify or develop research questions through various exchange formats, to question already existing practices and to test both together in an open, process-oriented working climate. The lab is free of charge for the participants and includes a daily lunch together in studio 2. The number of participants is limited and an application will be required.

More information about the application and details about the program can be found here from 6.3.2018.
