A project on video dance in public spaces by Katerina Valdivia Bruch.
Screening of a selection of video dance pieces developed in Brazil
(Belém do Pará, Recife and Olinda), India (Bangalore) and Germany

in urban spaces.
Berlin-based choreographer and dancer Katerina Valdivia Bruch conducted
between 2015 and 2016 a series of workshops on video dance in the
public space in Brazil (Belém do Pará, Recife and Olinda), and in India
(Bangalore). The participants performed in urban settings as a starting
point for the creation of video dance pieces, with a focus on the use
of the architecture.
A selection of some workshop videos, including some pieces made by
Katerina, will be screened during this evening. After the screening, we
will open a discussion on video dance and performing in public spaces.
