Performative Stadtführung vom Gasteig zum HochX mit anschließendem Symposium /
in englischer Sprache


As part of Tanzplattform Deutschland 2020, Munich‘s independent dance scene is offering three performative city walks during which the venues and open spaces of local artists will be presented. First the Artistic Walk The Land’s Heart is Greater Than Its Map by ivo theatre (London) will take you from Gasteig to HochX. The project explores the politics and power of tour guiding and questions who has the authority to give a coherent narrative of a city and how we are able to come into contact with the ‘real’ essence of a place.

At HochX you are invited to join the performative symposium titled Transtopie (transtopia): in brief keynote presentations and performative demonstrations, local artists use different approaches to tap into socially permeable spaces through political art.

With CHAKKARS, Taigué Ahmed, asperformance & NON Company, Mario Lopes and others

5.3. | 10 am | The route will begin at the Gasteig. The number of places is limited. Please register by email:

Die freie Münchner Tanzszene bietet im Rahmen der Tanzplattform Deutschland drei performative Stadtspaziergänge an, die FreiRäume von und mit lokalen Künstler*innen vorstellen.

Am 5. März führt das britische Theaterkollektiv ivo theatre die Teilnehmer*innen in ihrem künstlerischen Spaziergang The Land’s Heart Is Greater Than Its Map vom Gasteig zum HochX und webt dabei eine ganz eigene Art der Mythologie des Blicks. Der Spaziergang mündet in das performative Symposium Transtopie: In kurzen Impulsvorträgen und performativen Demonstrationen beleuchten lokale Künstler*innen und Choreograph*innen unterschiedliche Ansätze, durch politische Kunst gesellschaftlich durchlässige Räume aufzuspannen. Wie entstehen Strukturen, die Veränderung möglich machen?

Impulse von und mit CHAKKARS, Taigué Ahmed, asperformance & NON Company, Mario Lopes, u.a.

Sandra Chatterjee’s (PhD, UCLA) choreographic and scholarly work is situated at the intersection of theory and practice deals with performance, dance, and the body with a focus on gender, postcolonial and migration studies. In her research she has been critically interrogating the aesthetic category of the „contemporary“ in the context dance in Europe. Additional (research) interests include (artistic) collaboration, and the possible intersection of artistic practice, civil engagement and cultural and artistic citizenship. Currently, she is part of the research team of the FWF-funded project Border Dancing across Time

She is also the choreographer of the performance no smell in outer space (2019), founding member of the Post Natyam Collective and the co-initiator and co-organizer of CHAKKARS – Postmigrantische und Postkoloniale Interventionen im und durch Tanz (together with Sarah Bergh).

Alessandro Pintus (NON Company) and Alexander Wenzlik (asperformance) are working since 2017 with semi-professional dancers from all around Europe on Apocalisse Nova: A Butoh Dance choreographic project inspired by the masterpiece of the Renaissance painter Luca Signorelli, placed in the Nova Chapel at the Orvieto Cathedral in Italy.

Since the Renaissance represented a revolution in the European culture, with this project they investigate the need for a new Renaissance today, that gives us the opportunity to transform the way we consider art in relation to society. They believe that every artistic revolution has something in common with the meaning of the Apocalypse as a “Revelation” of different ways to conceive body, space and time.

In their talk they will give an introduction to their working method and a perspective on how to exist and survive as independent Butoh Artists in this dance society and in our modern culture.
