A social choreography by
Dana Caspersen and William Forsythe
Over the course of one week, in three diverse neighborhoods in the area of Berlin, the project Knotunknot will bring together hundreds of residents to engage in kinetic dialogue on the topic of immigration. Led by Dana Caspersen of the Forsythe Company, these dynamic events will be open to the public and realized in cooperation with Kuringa Berlin, Tolerantes Eberswalde, The Academy of Visual Art in Frankfurt, The Forsythe Company, the Commissioner for Integration in the District of Marzahn-Hellersdorf and local groups.
Knotunknot is a choreographic action—a social choreography—that provides situations in which to consider the experience and effect of living in the dynamic systems that immigration produces. The conversations and interactions these rooms enable are not intended as opportunities to achieve agreement, to persuade or to debate. Instead, they are a way of looking at where we stand in relationship to each other around the topic of immigration and to consider how we got there.
