wander (12+)

explore dance / München

The choreography WANDER (working title) aims to be as close as possible to a “street work” and uses the wall as a layer of multiple meanings: as a point of support, as a surface, a creative matrix, a reflection. The wall opens diverse dimensions as a book, a testimony of stories to be observed, challenged and questioned. The two performers and the musician transform the visual street art with their bodies and sound into movement. Driven by the quest for precision, the movement research oscillates or playfully gets lost between different qualities and images, discovering a hybrid body in constant search for a new identity.
Being accessible to everyone by being shown on publicly visible surfaces of the urban space, Street Art has the ability to trigger a reaction in all of us – regardless of age. Raising curiosity and questions on the theme of identity, WANDER interacts with the (young) audience who is free to mirror, to get closer or to get lost within the boundaries between the spectator and the performer.

WANDER is a glimpse of freedom of thought, or a way, as Banksy says, to “climb over that wall”.
