A city has many stories to tell and each one has many sides: what’s it like to walk through our cities during the day or in the dead of night?; Do the roads to work, home and play make travel a breeze or a chore?
Bodies in Urban Spaces is a moving trail, choreographed for a group of dancers. The performers will be leading the audience through selected parts of public and semi-public spaces in the town of Mellieħa. A chain of physical interventions set up very quickly and only existing temporarily, will allow the viewer to perceive the same space or place in a new and different way – on the run.
By placing the bodies in selected spots around the town, the interventions provoke a thinking process and produce irritation. Passersby, residents and audience are motivated and prompted to reflect their urban surrounding and their own movement behaviour and habits.
Bodies in Urban Spaces invites the public, including residents of the town to walk their own town, thus establishing a stronger relationship to their neighbourhood, district and town. The interventions are temporarily without leaving any traces behind; only imprints in the eyewitnesses’ memory.
The performances will be happening on the 10th and 11th November at 10.30am and 3pm. To register your attendance, follow this link!
This project is a collaboration with ŻiguŻajg Festival.
