On Tradition (1 Street - 12 people - 12 Films)
In the frame of Tanznacht-Forum 2015
They come from Lebanon, Turkey, Germany, Iraq, the Gaza strip, South Korea and Pakistan: dance/video artist Jo Parkes has worked with 12 people who have their shops in Badstraße in Berlin to investigate the role of tradition in their lives. What do you do which your parentsdid before you? How do you do it differently? How do your children do it differently? The result is a series of 12 short video portraits forming a video installation on Badstraße.
The projekt "On Tradition" is part of "In Residence", an annual project with teams of artists working at Badstraße. Since 2012 dance artists are in summer „in residence“ at different shops at Badstr. The project is developed by Jo Parkes and Inge Koks and is artistically led by Jo Parkes/Mobile Dance, working in partnership with Tanzfabrik Berline.V.
