Driven by the powerful sound of a one-woman band, four dancers surprise the audience on their journey through different conditions of performance. Between order and chaos, between appearing and disappearing, they throw our notions of risk, intimacy and community into question. Gravity meets weightlessness, falling meets flying. PLAY combines dance and live music to create an interdisciplinary performance that invites the audience to experience everyday places anew. Can a life together be conceived anew through play?
There will be a follow-up discussion of "PLAY" on May 31.
Information Access: The performance will take place at Tempelhofer Feld, Am Luftgarten, 12049 Berlin-Neukölln (approx.10min walking distance from the barrier-free main entrance Herrfurthstrasse). Meeting point is at the main entrance Herrfurthstrasse, 30min before the performance starts. The spectators decide for themselves from where they want to watch. They can move freely during the performance, leave the place at any time and return to it. Chairs and cushions will be provided. Sounds are welcome.
A one-woman band plays live. The music does not play continuously. There are individual scenes where the drums are at a high volume. Proximity to the musician can be self-determined.
The nearest accessible restrooms are located directly at the performance venue, as well as at the main entrance Herrfurthstrasse. At the main entrances Columbiadamm and Herrfurthstrasse, individual car parking spaces are reserved for people with disabilities in the public streetscape (parking lot supplementary sign 1044-10).
