Germany and Europe as intercultural spaces of experience
Digital conference | Deutsches Hygiene-Museum
We will be taking part in the the digital conference DIVIDED HOMES, which takes places in the form of a workshop. We will present different research formats which we have developed, tested and extended over the past years. Small interactive attempts with the participants will take place, which will be a new experience for us. We are looking forward to it and thank the team of Deutsches Hygiene-Museum for the invitation.

Audio-installation for 100+1-year anniversary of Wigman School
Villa Wigman, former kleine szene and before that Wigman School, is a building full of stories: adrenaline, sweat, fight for the passionate desire for dance. The walls have seen a lot. Stories from the walls have been exposed, thanks to the restorer Sonja Kaeten. But those pieces of experience can only be found out through those people who have dedicated their time to dance, even until today. We interview different contemporary witnesses who tell us about their experiences, observations, activities and sensory impressions in the context of Villa Wigman.
What is your connection to Villa Wigman?
What meaning does this place have to you?
Were there special experiences/observations/anecdotes in connection with this place that you would like to share with us?
Explain this place at that time from your memory.
What sensory experiences, smells, sounds etc. do you connect with this place?
What influence did the Villa have on your life, learning, dance?
What connection do you have to Mary Wigman?
The results can be heard at audio stations in the small hall at Villa Wigman. Different materials, from photos through posters to stage models, will expand the collective memory.
We invite you to reminiscence or to learn something new from us.

What should be saved when the water is rising? What things, but also knowledge, abilities and what individual information may not be lost?
We ask different people and communities. Some people, who grew up in DDR, studied, worked and raised a family there, and whose knowledge and experience was not needed anymore after the fall of the Berlin Wall. These experiences are also shared by those who have recently arrived in Dresden, who had to leave their homes due to war, terror, poverty and other existential threats. They also had to leave knowledge and experience, as well as other people and things. We want to collect that knowledge and experiences and make it visible, so that it will not be lost.
Based on the concept by the British collective Quarantine, seven cities across Europe develop visions and realisations around the topic ‘ark’. In Dresden, the ark will be developed at the the bank of the river Elbe, a place that is many visit and share. Located between Johannstadt and Neustadt, around the ferry terminal ‘Johanna’, a public place for meetings and experience exchange, for workshops and conversations will emerge. Performative interventions for an interested audience will take place on the on the ferry ‘Johanna’.

The temperature of the neighborhoods will be measured!
We will be biking through Dresden and go to different neighborhoods, set up our mobile office for real affectivities and collect moods, desires, needs and experiences: they’re going to be pinned, typed, pipetted and stapled. The results will be part of our next production Transitraum and will be shown in September 2020 at the Societaetstheater Dresden. Also, the audience will meet the mobile office for real affectivities there.
We will be on the road in June, July and August.
