Erde Workshop2

Sat 17/September at 4pm

Hosted by: Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit and Moabit Mountain College

“The research starts alone (in solo) and allows you to create awareness of the space and composition in real time. We work in small groups and all together afterwards, as one breath.”
Maddi Fuente Ubani

fantastic feminist futures invite the Improvisation Group which was initiated at Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit by dancer and choreographer Maddi Fuente Ubani. The sessions are an invitation to find one’s own movement through free investigation by using images, but also sound or different qualities of movement.

During the event we will get inside in the group practice: starting from the group warm-up, the investigation of group´s energy, game-alike exercises, to the movement proposal, inspired also by the nature of the place. At the end the group will share in the form of both performer and audience with the rest. For those who are interested in joining the group activity, no previous dance experience is necessary, just the desire to share and search in oneself. Afterwards, we will enjoy a cochlear (akelarre), reflect upon our experience, asking questions, and eating together.
Participation is free of charge. No registration is required.

fantastic feminist futures invite artists who relate to intersectional feminist perspectives to introduce their artistic practices. We are interested in bringing to light the processes, the small changes rather than the spectacular leaps, the knowledge of what often remains in the shadows. This close reading of practices happens in the very particular place of Strandbad Tegelsee/Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung: on the one hand remote, in the woods on the lake Tegel, and at once in the middle of the city of Berlin. This gives us the trigger to embrace artistic practices outside the traditional context of the white cube while connecting and reconnecting to the environment. The presentations will be intertwined with the joint preparation of food, walks, or readings, engaging different future orientations.


fantastic feminist futures is started by Nadira Husain, Agnieszka Kilian and Marina Naprushkina.
