Dancing to the sounds of Lichtenberg

Dancing to the Sounds of Lichtenberg’ is a project conceived while on the Lichtenberg Studios Residency this year, with 50% professional dancers and 50% un-trained dancers, dancing to the surrounding sounds of various locations in the borough of Lichtenberg in Berlin. The trained and un-trained movers and dancers are reacting to everyday sounds and interpreting these in different ways, in industrial, urban landscapes, at historical landmarks, abandoned buildings, tourist sites and empty parking lots. Where noise becomes a rhythm, traffic a beat, bird song a melody, wind a movement. A purely physical reaction to Lichtenberg.
