> ASPHALT WELTEN
On August 18 (show starts at 8:00 p.m.) we will show our production ASPHALTWELTEN at tanz.tausch – Dance and Performance Festival in Cologne. An extremely fitting occasion, as the festival also celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
More information as well as tickets are available here.
ASPHALTWELTEN creates a utopia through dance: a group that renounces stability and security, a life without walls, without insurance, without roots. Being at home in the body, not in buildings. Independent of origin, orientation and opinion. A coming together of biographies on public but “neutral” ground. How do we feel and create our own “artistic shelter”? How far does it reach; does it encompass only me or others as well? How can I carry it, support it,
take it with me and share it?

About ibug Festival
Since the first industrial brownfield redevelopment in 2006, ibug has become a world-renowned festival of urban art. Every year on the last weekend in August, a brownfield site in Saxony is opened as a temporary exhibition. The focus of the international artists is on experimenting with genres, materials and techniques as well as on the past of the wasteland and its architecture. The ibug team has received many awards for its commitment, including the “PlusPunkt Kultur” award from the Federal Association for Cultural Education for Children and Youth in 2010, the “So geht Sächsisch” ideas competition for tourism in Saxony in 2019, and the “Denkzeit Event” competition of the Saxon State Ministry for Science, Culture and Tourism in 2020 for creative ideas and innovative concepts for the implementation of existing or new events under corona conditions.
