City walks

A project directed by Angela Stöcklin.


“Body-architecture meets urbanity, moving images the dynamics of urban structures”
Project presented during the architekturwoche Basel 2022.


 



City walks is a danced performative tour through urban surroundings. Like Land Art it carves out what is there but often stays unnoticed. Body-architecture meets urbanity, moving images the dynamics of urban structures. The performers guide the eye of the public towards a city’s flow of movement, underline architectonic structures and point out signals. The city is being discovered through a sharpened lens and dance closely experienced.

City walks is like filling up empty spaces and molding traces, which special connections draw. Movement and body materialize the energy of these relations. Public follows the performers on their tour and discovers a part of their city in a playful refreshed way.
