FLOATING THURSDAYS

FLOATING THURSDAYS

As a warm up for the summer to come, please join us on the first Thursday of each month for a very special floating evening. The Floating University e.V. proposes a diverse program, a bar and mud in the basin! Detailed program to be announced two weeks before.

Wednesday, October 2th, 16-22 hs
1+1 (Eins Plus Eins) 

This time we invite for different but unique artistic approaches – all of the performative field – that deal with the fragile space of two (bodies, people, strangers) within the complex frame of the everyday urban life of Berlin, Sao Paolo, Shanghai und Mumbai. The bar is open and as for the coming autumn we´ll offer hot punsh and fire and possibly heat the Onsen (if we make it!). So bring a  towel just in case and a nice stone to keep your fingers or feet warm!

16.00  Doppelagentschaft

Arantxa Martinez/Sabine Zahn

18.00  Together Apart

eine lecture performance von plan b

language: englisch

plan b are the British artists Sophia New and Dan Belasco Rogers who have lived in Berlin since 2001. Over a decade ago they decided to record every single movement they make outside, every day, with a GPS, a practice they continue to the present. As a result, they can also trace the times when they have been together and apart, the starting – point for a work investigating the ghosts of past proximity and separation. In this performative lecture, especially adapted for the Floating University, they present some thoughts and reflections on data, memory, daily practice, intimacy, physicality, distance and sharing space and time. www.planbperformance.net

19.30  The Visitor

Ein Film von Katarina Schröter

Sprache / language: none/engl/dt.
anschließendes Gespräch

“The visitor”, a silent figure incorporated by the filmmaker, roams through three Mega-cities, creating wordless encounters with random people, following a dramaturgy of chance both with the choice of the protagonist as with the outcome of each story. First simply attendant, she becomes an intruder, friend and even beloved one who shares the whole daily life of her protagonists, their sleeping places and worries. “The visitor” has been created entirely through un-staged improvisations with random encounters on the streets of Mumbai, Shanghai and Sao Paulo.

NACHBARSCHAFTSGRILLEN

We cordially invite everyone to our next Floating Thursday to spend a nice afternoon at the pool and grill together with neighbours and local initiatives.

 

And so much for the relaxed evening program:

It starts at 4 pm, drinks are served at the bar, which are especially tasty in the cooled pool.

 

From 6 p.m. the barbecue is turned on: bring your grill provisions with you – a minimum of vegetarian grill side dishes will be provided.

 

At 8 p.m. the circus Cabuwazi will introduce itself, report about its manifold social program and delight us with tricks and cabaret.
More information at: https://cabuwazi.de/

 

From 20.30 hrs the temple rescuers introduce themselves.
A young citizens’ participation initiative that has set up itself at the gate house of the former Tempelhof Fulghafen building and will tell of their process of the solidarity-based right of joint use of the huge area.
more information at: https://thfnext.org/ and https://www.facebook.com/thfnext/

The video album “My Body – My City” will be shown from 9 p.m. onwards.

A video album of young people and their movements in relation to the city they live in. Together with all participants, we set out in search of what moves us and the question of how it can be translated into movement. The project is a collaboration of professional artists* and young dancers* of all levels between 8 and 24 years.
