WHAT DOES THE SPACE KNOW (2019-2022)

Spaces are temporal. And a potential for a shared moment.

In this interactive dance performance/installation they unfold, come to life, and then transform. We wonder how their resonance remains with us? How does the knowledge they have produced inform the places we are creating now?

In this dance duet we investigate how spaces turn into places through connecting the past, present and future of the individual and the collective. Memories and imagination guide us through the creation of temporary embodied ways of relating.

Between dance, theatre, and installation art, dance artists Farah Saleh (Palestine/UK) and Mirjam Sögner (DE/AT) explore how creatively being in/with vanished places can become a new form of encountering and being with others.
