Anna Halprin | Anne Collod
Blank placard dance, replay
This year’s festival edition presents various outdoor performances: For Anna Halprin’s 1967 Blank Placard Dance, 20 dancers moved through the streets of San Francisco carrying empty white placards, which the imaginations of the passers-by could fill as they wished. Anne Collod takes a reenactment of Halprin’s demonstration onto the streets of Berlin, departing from Gendarmenmarkt. Hunting, conquest and military traditions – these are the themes which Rudi van der Merwe addresses in his performance Trophée. The audience will reach this performance at the Vierfelderhof in Gatow via a Shuttlebus from HAU2. In the shadow of HAU1, also outdoors, Cie Zora Snake’s Au-delà de l’humain sounds out the borders of the known. His choreographies are expeditions into the unknown, exploring the post-colonial African body in the space where performing arts, urban dance and African dance intersect.
