NEUNAU live:

a glimpse of the space
a glimpse of the space

Text below from District Berlin:

Julian Weber’s multi-platform, interdisciplinary performance and exhibition project constructing ruins explores the relationship between visual art, dance, and music as a collaborative process. constructing ruins (keeping it wet) at District manifests itself in a setting located between laboratory and workshop, club and stage where the physical conditions and inter-worlds of animate and inanimate matter are explored. The topos of the catastrophic herein becomes a territory of possibility, a space to generate interactions between objects and bodies.

As both a material and metaphorical paradox, the construction of ruins provides the point of departure for fragmentary, unfinished, and processual constellations. Materials like clay and aluminum rods compose figurative and architectonic structures. Computer images and textures alight from the screen to expand the spatial display.

In this humid, ever-transforming environment, Julian Weber invites musicians and visitors to explore the performative potential of a ruinous setting through collaborative, sculptural actions. Enacting a hybrid figure which combines the tour guide and the obsessive compulsive looper, the performer, sculptor, and choreographer plays between different registers of the animate.

To get to District Berlin, take the S-bahn to Südkreuz and then walk towards Ikea. District Berlin is just behind (15 minutes walk from the S-bahn). You can also get there from U6 Alt-Tempelhof. The night buses go back every 10 minutes from any of these two stations and it takes about half an hour back to Kreuzberg / Mitte.
