Daniel Aschwanden (CH/A)
Lecture Performance: City in the City
Date: Fri, Apr 01 and Sat, Apr 02, 20:30
Based on the site of the future lakeside town in Aspern on the northeastern border of Vienna, its urban transformation processes and the temporary and intended residents, the question arises of the choreographic as the inscribing and creative gesture and challenge for the creation of artistic spaces, which are also always societal, political and social: what is the relationship of performative intervention to this landscape, of the artistic to the urban-planning design of the lakeside town? In a lecture performance Daniel Aschwanden gives examples of his creative work in the area, which he approaches with various different scores. The choreography shifts among other things into photography, video and experimental architecture: how does the body formulate itself in it, what potential do these surfaces offer for it to work and what effect does it have on the audience?
In the course of his on-site activities, Daniel Aschwanden meets the projectionist Cornelia Zenk and the sound designer Mattthias Hurtl. Together they create a transmedia setting for the lecture and also incorporate the results of an analysis of texts by Thomas Ballhausen into the evening.
Parallel to the lecture performance there is also a photo exhibition in the nadaLokal and a guided walk by artists through the area of the lakeside town.
