p.u.r.e. walk POTSDAMER PLATZ (p.u.r.e. - performative urban research ensemble)
A p.u.r.e. walk – a performative walk – is an adventure of (re)discovering, appropriation, interruption and (re)shaping the city. In the midst of our busy lives, we decelerate and enter the mode of environmental awareness: we immerse ourselves in a performance in which the city is improvising itself, it improvises us, we are improvising the city.
WALK POTSDAMER PLATZ - Treffpunkt: Potsdamer Platz, Historische Ampel, Potsdamer Platz, Tiergarten, 10785 Berlin

impro.per.arts - improvisation & arts in action
p.u.r.e is a Berlin-based collective of walking artists, who have been exploring the multifold relationships between human beings and the city since 2015. Our special focus is urban ecology of sound and movement.
We perceive the city as a performative process in which we are all take part and urban space as being produced by these performative acts. Led by the question “How does the city shape us?” and “How do we shape the city?”, we continue to develop minimalistic aesthetics of urban performance. External participants are invited to join these performative city walks to gain a first-hand experience of our explorations.
p.u.r.e. walk is a performative walk in public space and takes place at Potsdamer Platz (meeting point: Potsdamer Platz, historic traffic light).
