A public space: Passers-by are passing by, people hurry, stroll, rest or wait. There is a small square marked by a yellow line on the floor that cries for attention. It communicates and interacts with those who are present and invites them to be part of the performance in whatever form they choose.

Schrittstück#1 (2015-2016)

IDEA, CREATION AND PERFORMANCE: Diethild Meier & Jasminka Stenz

ARTISTIC ADVICE: Hanna Hegenscheidt

Schrittstück#1 is a quartet for four legs. The two performers play with a compositional experimental arrangement based on steps in a limited space. They walk in unison with a steady pace and rhythm. Their trajectories cross, almost collide, and constantly change the relation of proximity and distance. The steps generate rhythmic surfaces, leaving a trace in space, engraving a pattern of covered paths into time. The space is made visually and audibly palpable, its subjective boundaries expand and contract.
