A Multimedia dance performance & Installation in public spaces – A creation by 12H Dance, Ziepert, Tzavara & Decrustate. A project from VORPOMMERN TANZT AN – movin’ bröllin
GRENZ.LAND deals with the phenomenon of borders in today’s society …
… not only as a geographical separation between nation states, but also within one’s own country. The focus is on aspects such as belonging and exclusion as well as the question of which limits, in particular, “newcomers” are confronted with.
To this end, the artist collective 12H Dance, Ziepert, Tzavara & Decrustate carried out intensive discussions and video recordings with people from Mecklenburg Vorpommern with different generations and origins (from Australia to North Rhine-Westphalia).
A multimedia dance piece and an audiovisual installation with earth objects in public space emerged from their moving experiences.
