Call for Participants in Anna Halprin’s / Anne Collod’s performance project “Blank Placard Dance, replay”

on 27 August 2017 in the context of Tanz im August, 29th International Festival Berlin

We are looking for approximately 30 amateur performers, who are interested in replaying Anna Halprin’s Blank Placard Dance. Originally created in 1967, the performance by American choreographer Anna Halprin will be reinterpreted by French choreographer Anne Collod and you as fellow participant. The legendary performance from 1967 was created in reaction to the Vietnam War and social turmoils in the USA. In the light of our current society, in times of political crisis and frequent system crashes, this replay shows that it is as relevant today as it was back then.

Become a part of a politically motivated dance performance and a collective process, which will be actively co-created by performers and the audience alike.

Blank Placard Dance, replay is a silent protest march of the participants, accompanied by a group of musicians. Armed with white placards the protesters march in the streets of Berlin.

As participant you do not need any specific competences in dance. However, body consciousness and movement experience as well as interest in group work are desirable for the collective creation process.

Thu., 24 August from 17:00 to 20:30 and Fri., 25 August from 16:30 to 20:00
Dress Rehearsal Sat., 26 August from 16:30 to 21:30
The performance begins on Sun., 27 August at 17:30 with a shuttle from HAU3 at 16:30
