FARAH SALEH, MIRJAM SÖGNER movement workshop

Wed 26. February at 17:00 - Fri 28. February 2020 at 19:00

Workshop is in 2 sessions, on 26th and 28th of February.

Kanuti Gildi SAAL · Pikk tn 20, Estonia

The workshop offers movement scores dealing with the connection between space, memories and heritage. Derived from Farah Saleh’s and Mirjam Sögner’s current research on cultural heritage in Palestine and Germany and ways of collectively envisioning, embodying and activating temporary spaces. 
In the workshop we will ask questions: how does the space know? How do our bodies remember when spaces disappear or are reshaped? And is a void a new kind of heritage? 


Workshop takes place on 26 and 28.02 between 17:00-19:00 at Kanuti Gildi SAAL.
Participation for free, but requires registration!
Taking part at both sessions is required!
