Public Affairs.

8 June 2017. Performance at Wildwuchs Festival 2017, Kaserne Basel. http://www.wildwuchs.ch/de/produktion/Public_Affairs

September/October 2016, Basel, Offene Kirche Elisabethen: Creation of Public Affairs, a new work created in collaboration with refugees and Basel citizens. Produced by Tanzbüro Basel.

Public Affairs explores the the movements of a group. A play between proximity and distance, forming and separating, buildup and collapse. A juxtaposition of the individual and the group, of the private and the public. What do we know of each other? How much of the individual is visible an a community? How does the collective perception differ from the personal? Over five weeks, choreographer Mirjam Gurtner worked together with people from Basel and people who have fled to Basel to create a contemporary dance piece. The amateur dancers were not taught a finished choreography but searched for a common artistic language.
