POLY(e)MOTION is the second edition of Movement Research ACROSS, a music and movement research programme in public space at Galerie Wedding and the neighbouring Town Hall Square (Rathausvorplatz), developed and curated by XO Curatorial Projects, Solvej Helweg Ovesen and Kathrin Pohlmann, in collaboration with curators Nitsan Margaliot and Malte Pieper. Contemporary dance and participatory practices are applied as creative space making and social stage setting in the heart of Wedding. Body positivity, aesthetic quality and street smartness will be the in the focus.
POLY(e)MOTION is a polycentric neighbourhood event with a pop-up amphitheatre. For the three-day festival, we will set up again the ›Flexible Colour Circle‹ by artist Viron Erol Vert, which already served as the central venue for the performances of ACROSS 2022. The festival's diverse hybrid formats, designed for public space, loosen bodies with humour and make the street vibrate. In POLY(e)MOTION we connect movement research and emotions of all bodies and from all corners of the world to a contemporary, interdisciplinary, local Berlin event. Free of charge and open to all.
