Festival prolog: Made in... Potsdam

Dancing future – 100 years of Bauhaus | WLDN / Joanne Leighton (Paris)  

11 – 12 May 2019 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2019Dance / performance

The series Made in... by the Belgian-Australian choreographer Joanne Leighton combines sculpture with nature, land art with urbanity. Almost 80 Potsdam amateur dancers have explored their city. How does architecture move people and what is human architecture? In interaction with a sound installation and futuristic props, places, people, and architecture are transformed into a unique choreography that connects opposites and creates a new work of art.
