Down to Earth at Tanzfabrik Berlin is all about sustainability
Text: Christine Matschke
In view of the pandemic restrictions, Tanzfabrik Berlin’s Down to Earth, originally planned as a summer festival, is now dedicated to the topic of sustainability in the performative arts as a four day long Research Lab. Down to Earth, with both feet on the ground, will then remain performers Akseli Aittomäki, Patricia Coates a.k.a Lucy Palustris, Hayden Fowler, Miriam Jakob, Matthias Krause, Felix M. Ott, Emmilou Rößling, Caique Tizzi, Pink Valley, Thea Reifler and Thabo Thindi. Together, they will address the question of the reciprocal relationship between art production and working conditions. The lab is not about unique results and processes of individualization, but rather about a collective artistic economy and an open transfer of knowledge of precious resources – in other words, recycling and upcycling instead of hyping new products. Or simply making transparent what art has always nourished itself from, beyond consumer-oriented flights of fancy? Within the framework of a Time to Meet format, a public show with a limited number of participants and in-advance reservation as well as the project’s documentation pave the way for non-virtual paths into a public sphere that is now increasingly being shared with one another again.
