Dialogue Group Applied Transformation

explore dance Gespräch 2021/22

The “Dialog Group Applied Transformation” will accompany the festival Cool Down in a research-oriented way with their post-talk format Shake Formation. Festival impressions will be transformed into freshly made shakes. In Shake Formation they mix not only summer berries, but also experimental thoughts. Participants and guests are invited to reflect on new impressions, take a taste and take a step back. What fruit symbolizes collaboration? What does sustainability taste like?
