WalkMe_imatge2

An intervention in a space, in order to create new experiences for the body.

How often do we notice the spaces we inhabit – the towns we live in; the shopping malls we browse? How do these structured spaces impact our activities, our routines, our movement?

In an effort to raise awareness of the significance of these physical interactions on our bodies, and in turn, our health and creativity; we invite you to take another look at the structure of the spaces you use. Reconsider what is normal, and think more about what is natural.

What if the stairs weren’t stairs, but slides? What if the ground was never flat; or if we had suspension bridges in our shopping malls instead of wide corridors? What if we saw the world as a playground?

Walk Me and find out…

Walk Me is presented as part of the LÉIM Project – a European dance leadership project supported by the EU Commission.

LÉIM is an innovative piece of action research offering ten international participants the opportunity to undertake a personal and collective professional leadership development journey in dance.

Led by Dance Ireland (IE) in partnership with CSC /Bassano del Grappa (IT), Dance House Lemesos (CY), Mercat de les Flors Barcelona (ES) and TanzHaus nrw Düsseldorf (DE), LÉIM is a 2-year cooperation project financed by the EU Culture 2007-2013 Programme.

“Walk Me” is a concept devised by LÉIM Project participant Maria Philippou (CY), andis supported Sheila Creevey (IE) and Natalia Alvarez (ES).

With Tango de Soledad i T’es pas la seule

The dance takes place on two vertical (virtual) white ladders spaced so one can hardly view both dancers at once. The ladders on the one hand are symbolic of transition and death (Jenseits, the other side, beyond, also refers to the afterlife in German) but also function choreographically by defining the spaces the dancers inhabit in a similar way that a musical scale allows the listener to interpret melody. A paired series of visual images by the German artist Silke Mansholt are projected onto the dancers, ladders and background progressing throughout the piece to blackness.
