Invitation to Walk – A collective choreography performance

Open Studio by Katja Münker

Regardless in which context we walk the complex events are firmly defined and completely open at the same moment. It requires planning, adaptation and improvisation to cope. The live occurring composition of paces, traces, places and other bodies, of action and stillness is unique and always specific. From the individual it constantly requires decision-making if and how to lead or to follow. In this performance sounds, signs, gestures and language are inviting and alluring the audience to walk or to stop at any moment, to support or leave images, pattern or unison. Therefore a space occurs for the joy of aesthetic moments and the reflection of collectivity.
