k/no/w-go-zones (AT) (Grupo Oito)
How do we move in public space? How does public space move us? In this interactive performance parcours with narrative elements, the audience will move through layers of urban hi/stories between the personal and the political. The performance makes bitter and surprising realities visible, invites focus shifts in perception and opens up spaces of possibility and intervention.

Grupo Oito is an independent dance company that has been working in Berlin for over 10 years. Their collaboration is based on the Get Physical method of choreographer Ricardo de Paula from Brazil, bringing together elements from various contemporary, classical and transmitted approaches for working with dance, body and consciousness. In their dance pieces, the group engages with virulent social and political questions, how these appear in personal lives and how they can be transformed. Their work has been presented in various locations in Berlin (Mimecentrum, Hoftheater, Ballhaus Naunynstraße) as well as festivals in Istanbul and Kenya.
"k/no/w-go-zones" is a performance in public space. The meeting point is in front of Kunstquartier Bethanien.
