I Paused Halfway Up The Stairs

I Paused Halfway Up The Stairs brings together artists and cultural workers that have been involved in the recent migration of choreography and performance from the theatre to the visual arts context. Over the course of two evenings, I Paused Halfway Up The Stairs will raise questions about how performance practices play with this institutional border, and how they appropriate, negotiate and challenge its aesthetics and production circumstances. The works and talks presented, will lay out a landscape of different takes on the relationship between performance, choreography and the visual arts, and try to redefine, question and challenge these notions, its methods and institutions.

In collaboration with GRÜNBERGERSTRAßE 12.
