Soundance sketch / Floating Thursday June

Jasminka Stenz – dance/choreography, Gábor Hartyáni – cello/composition

A dancer and a cellist will create an artistic sketch together through site-specific exploration in a garden colony with a rainwater retention basin. The sound-performative encounter with site-specific choreography will forge a visual-audio path – live and digitally adapted.

This site-specific performance within the Floating Thursday is the conclusion of the residency cooperation between soundance festival berlin, Floating e.V. and the Kolonie am Flughafen e.V.

Thu, 04.06.2020, start 19:00
Place: digital/ online: soundance-festival.de (update end of May)

Climate Care: Digital Archive launched at Zabriskie bookshop 

Following the conclusion of the festival curated by Gilly Karjevsky and Rosario Talevi, the digital archive was conceptualised by ATLAS/STUDIO (Lucía Alonso & Ernesto Bauer) and programmed by Lucas Pose, with graphic design by Roman Karrer. The online repository archives the activities that inhabited the basin through images, videos and text documentation: from hot-compost-making, experimenting with bio-materials, the baking of urban hives, weather writing or “tuning-in” methods, reading aloud and looking at care on a planetary scale. 

Find the digital archive here.

Site hibernates while we prepare for summer

Floating University* is currently on pause for winter. We are working towards our spring and summer 2020 programming. The site will open in April, and we hope to see you then! Please sign up for our newsletter for updates. 

If you have enquiries or requests regarding programs, cooperations or just ideas, please fill out this form.

*Floating University will no longer be called University as this is a regulatory offense.




We are proud and exited to announce our new book: Floating University Berlin 2018 – an illustrated report

It is a chronological reflection, in pictures, of the first year of the Floating University. In it we tell the initial story of our visionary inner city offshore-laboratory for collective, experimental learning, knowledge transfer and the formation of trans-disciplinary networks to challenge the routines and habits of urban practices.
