How well do we actually know our own neighbourhood? How much history and which stories are hidden behind the historical facades we pass by daily, where does the past look through between the modern form. Where does the mysterious shimmer in the everyday. What did the street in front of our house, in front of our school, in front of our youth centre look like 50 or 100 years ago or even further back?

From the beginning of September, we will start looking for forms of expression that you develop with your own body, and search for images and moves that moved or have moved our city. This should result in an exciting film, which – despite all the distance (CORONA!) we have to keep – is closely related to your interests and experiences.

The project is accompanied by Stefanie Schwimmbeck (dance) and Reimar Brahms (film).

Participation in the Kultur-macht-stark funding project is free of charge and is financed directly by Aktion Tanz – Bundesverband Tanz in Bildung und Gesellschaft e.V.

The current official distance rules apply throughout the entire project.

Lichtspektakel in der Nacht

Where? Akki – Aktion & Kunst mit Kindern e.V. at Dusseldorf
Who? 10-14 years
How much? Free of charge
Registration? from 07.09.2020 at 0211 – 7 88 55 34

An extraordinary experiment in the dark: The Akkihalle is transformed into an artistic cinema, the house facade and the adjacent park are immersed in moving projections. 

Works of art are painted, built, colourfully illuminated and flooded with light images. Dance, theatre, video animation, computer animation, overhead projection and sound bring everything to life. This creates a fantastic world of ghostly and exciting apparitions, witty and playful comic figures, abstract art colours and forms. Black light, stage lights, overhead projectors and beamers are available as technical media to change moods and spatial impressions.

For three days artists and technicians will experiment, build and plan; Friday evening rehearsals will take place and on Saturday night parents and friends will be invited to the big light spectacle.

POSTPONED TO EASTER 2021 #CORONAVIRUS

In the dance laboratory, everything starts to move and a game emerges that seems never-ending. Dancers, musicians and artists explore with the children the question of what happens if you don’t stop, but just keep going – move on!

Not only the bodies dance: A pen dances over the paper, a finger over the iPad, a line over the wall. With “TagTool” movements become animated projections on walls and bodies. With “Makey Makey”, an electronic invention tool, bodies or self-made objects can be transformed into musical instruments and sounds start to dance.
