Heidi-Kabel Platz, Hamburg
LIVE ART FESTIVAL #7, Kampnagel
Curated by Melanie Zimmermann
An urban confrontation between state power and civil movements. It is dance with traces of civil protests and resistance movements from history, in the bodies and in distinctively political places such as Tahrir Square, Gezi Park or Wall Street, Maidan Square or East Jerusalem. Confrontations between citizens and police become recurring political events worldwide. NOW (THE CLASH) researched their dynamics and involved the public in choreography that begins with a gathering and ends in conflict in Hamburg’s city centre.
NOW (THE CAMP/THE CLASH) is a performance in two acts.
Part 1, entitled NOW (THE CAMP) took place on 30th May 2015 at the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial. It consisted of seven gatherings of commemoration and remembrance, as well as an artistic intervention.
