2010 | play! Leipzig

For 10 days in June 2010, Dani Lima was in residency in the city of Leipzig, Germany, at the invitation of professor Patrick Primavesi and performing artist  Diana Wesser, with the support of Tanzarchiv Leipzig + Institut fur Theaterwissenschaft der Universitat Leipzig + Statens Teaterskole Copenhagen, to develop a series of interventions in the city’s public space after a workshop with local art students and professionals, within the festival “play! Leipzig – movement in urban space”.

The workshop “Choreography for pavements, pedestrians and pigeons” sought to establish a dialogue with the conceptual issues proposed by the festival concerning the reappropriation and revitalization of Leipzig’s public space: What is the relationship between daily movements and the urban environment? What is our attitude towards historical places and buildings? How can theatrical activities reflect and influence the city’s public sphere?

Performers: Dani Lima, Tine Damborg and Tabea Trathburg
