New(s) Dance

In the project New(s) Dance we examine a new relationship to news. We experiment with dance and movement as methods of deep listening. Can we misappropriate dance to amplify our relationship to radio news?

By listening to news as a choreography that informs our daily lifes, we try to translate the different information into concrete dances. Through this process of estrangement, we try to dissolve the economy in which we take news for granted as we become habituated to them. Listening to the news becomes a dance exercise.

Based on a popular public German radio news broadcast we developed a score, with which you can do the movement research on your own.
