dancing in the streets

not with david bowie (though i would not mind dancing with him…) but rather with an amazing, absolutely rad crowd of students & lecturers that have been attending our masterclass in novosibirsk/russia and got heavily involved with ethnographic explorations into the city and conceptualizations of urban spaces.

the workshop has just been followed by an exhibition at the academy of architecture and arts, see the blog for photographs; the gallery as such can be found here.
the whole project will be completed by a workshop lead by choreographer richard siegal and, eventually, the final performance going out dancing in the streets of novosibirsk. perhaps re-enacting the everyday, staging sth., whatever, we will have to wait for richards ideas what to do with the notations and concepts we found during the workshop!

i will soon post a little bit more about the concept and the intentions behind the project. for those multilingual ones try stadt & tanz nowosibirsk to find out more.
the course as well as the whole programm we planned around it, is initiated by the local goethe institute in cooperation with the academy of architecture and arts as well as novosibirsk state university.

thanks to anna and all of you keeping the blog up!
