Articulating the ephemeral, the dance between language, movement and the unspoken 

Saturday 13:45-15:00 Studio 1

Moving and reading through the chaos, constantly changing and adapting to the environment and structures that regulate our bodies and movements provide a smorgasbord of potentials of co-creation, re-creation, articulations, and cross-referencing.

With: Colleen Bartley, Joana Chicau, Eszter Gál, Johanna Nielson, Agnes Schneidewind, Martin Streit
