Escape is body in motion, is the overcoming of space. The body on the run is always also body beyond the space assigned to it. It is located between a where from and a where to. What’s he taking from this where from? How does his presence change things? What does a fleeting body look like?
The workshop “Body. Escape. Space” deals with the topic “Body images in the context of flight and expulsion”. The participants will be introduced to the art of parkours. Together they enter the urban space, find unusual ways to overcome obstacles and make their own way through Dresden. We will also experiment with techniques of performance, dance, video and sound production.
Romy Weyrauch and Michael Neil McCrae are members of the theatre and performance collective theatrale subversion and have been artistic directors there since 2016. Together from Dresden they develop projects on stages and in urban space between documentary theatre, performance, multimedia and interactive experiment.
