Artist talk following 'Abandon Human'

Sharon Smith, Katie Duck and the light designer and visual artist Emese Csornai come together to create a spectacle event around the title Abandon Human. The artists discover text, movement, strategies for public inter action, sound score and visual light designs... After the performance we will talk with the artists about their four day creation process at the Dock 11.

Katie and Sharon have known and worked with each other off and on since the mid 90”s. They share a fondness for keeping the pieces they do in real time with an edge towards an anti hierarchical artists role with public’s. How did they prepare for the four day rehearsal? How did they work together at Dock 11? After the show we`ll get in talk with the artists.

About the venue:

Dock 11

The factory level of Dock 11 in Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg is a rehearsals room, teaching studio and dance stage in one. The stage programme has interdisciplinary supplements such as theatre, performance, literature, music, visual art, film and club art – however the main focal point of every performance is on purely dance elements. Together with its other premises in EDEN***** in Berlin-Pankow, Dock 11 has established itself as an important part of the Berlin dance scene. The unique combination of teaching, rehearsal and stage generates an exciting change of perspectives in both the artists and pupils, as well as among the audience.  (source: visitberlin.de)
