AUSDRUCK-MOBIL (MS Schrittmacher)
A bastei caravan makes it possible to experience „Ausdruck“ (expression) and „Mobilität“ (mobility) in its several meanings: The AUSDRUCK-MOBIL invites its visitors to follow autonomously the traces of more than 30 German “Ausdruckstanz” dancers.
Based on six questions the results of the research show which artistic inspiration the “Ausdruckstanz” dancers brought in the ‘40s into the „world of dance“ and which influences the retournees brought back to Germany.
A sound installation accompanies the track search. Ausdruckstanz”-impro videos, !nformation material and an animated online presentation (PREZI) is provided.
Valuable information can be printed out in the AUSDRUCK-MOBIL, can be sent by email upon request or can be provided directly on site from the research team.

MS Schrittmacher was founded in Berlin in 1998. From the beginning the dance/perfomance group grasped itself as a pool of free artists whereby choreograph Martin Stiefermann succeeded in giving the company a unique artistic identity.
In the past years MS Schrittmacher has made a name for itself with very different pieces and formats. Thereby the group questions constantly the classical situation of the spectator and looks for new perspectives for the audience.
Next to their stage plays MS Schrittmacher went more and more into the public space with their research and performance formats. On their consequent search for the gro-tesque in the real the group is standing for a socio-political debate that always intervenes in people’s direct experience.
