“If the body could speak”, what would it say? This is the question Robert Wechsler, choreographer and director of Palindrome Dance Company, asked himself when he designed an installation that generates sounds as soon as a body moves over a special carpet. An inclusive work that allows people with disabilities to dance and produce sounds, but also a poetic exercise, in which with just a few movements we can become a waterfall, a guitar or a bird rising into the sky, overcoming with imagination the limits imposed by the body. The magic carpet exists, and not only in fairy tales.


The German Dance Film Institute Bremen builds in the context of tanz:digital II a bridge between the motivation of the realizing artist:inside and the thus focused circle of users. In concrete terms, this means that “making ofs” will be created for around 10 individual projects, preparing potential users, whether tech-savvy or not, for what to expect if they decide to entrust themselves to one of the many new offerings.

Tanz:digital II is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media in the NEUSTART KULTUR program, aid program DIS-TANZEN of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland.
