We learn about the human body in anatomy or biology lessons by looking at the bone skeleton or as a system of muscle cords and functions. This includes muscles, organs and body parts. But what exactly defines these body parts? What makes my hand a hand? And why is there no specific word for the area between my elbow and my upper arm?
“Hey Body?!” uses dance, language and drawings to explore existing concepts and images of the body, changing and expanding them and playing with them.
The explore dance pop-up piece takes place as an external event at the Deutsches Hygiene Museum Dresden and is part of their school vacation program.
