The URBAN BODIES PROJECT is an ongoing artistic, urban and dance exploration of the city’s colonial past, each time the project takes place. So far six projects have been realized at the International Festival Theater der Welt in Hamburg in 2017, at the International Dance Festival JULIDANS in Amsterdam in 2019, at the festival DIE IRRITIERTE STADT in Stuttgart in 2020, at the Festival Teatro en tu Barrio in Mexico City in 2022 and at the International Dance Festival Jalisco in Guadalajara.
The URBAN BODIES PROJECT-MUNICH is the seventh URBAN BODIES project by Hamburg-based choreographer Yolanda Gutiérrez. The next one will take place in Kigali, Rwanda.
The audience will listen to audio files – a mixture of historical facts, personal biographies, music and interviews – through headphones as they move from place to place. A performative utopia of dance will emerge, in which urban space is occupied and intervened with dance and bodies. History becomes present and memorials in Munich become visible.
