Performer at Tanz im August 29. Internationales Festival - Berlin 2017

For Anna Halprin’s 1967 “Blank PlacardDance”, 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. With her choreographed demonstration, the American dance pioneer was reacting to the Vietnam War and to the social unrest in her own country. Nowadays, in the midst of equally tumultuous times,a reenactment of Halprin’s demonstration onto the streets of Berlin aimed to open again this questions: what could or should we be protesting against? And what should we be protesting for?
