Premiere | Dancing About Shelter

The third and final part of the project “Asphaltwelten” works on the artistic thesis of a utopia: a group that renounces social stability and security: a life without walls, without assurance, without ties. The body as the (only) home. Regardless of origin, orientation and opinion. A throwing together of biographies on public but “neutral” ground. How do we perceive and design our own “artistic shelter”? How far does it go; does it only include me or does it include others? How can I carry it, support it, take it with me and share it?

In this final work, the go plastic collective processes and reflects on the discourses that have arisen and been held over the entire project period (2020-2021) on the topics of shelter, life and art on the street, bodies in public space and their perception(s). This will form a participatory tableau which unites and narrates the collected theses, conclusions and findings in all their complexity, diversity and contradictions.

Cindy Hammer studied stage dance at the Palucca University of Dance Dresden. She is co-founder and artistic director of the go plastic company.

Susan Schubert studied at the Palucca University of Dance Dresden, graduating with a diploma in dance education, and completed her M.A. in dance studies at the Free University of Berlin. She has been co-director of go plastic since 2012.
