| Synopsis

Ich sehe was du nicht siehst (I see what you don’t see) is a site-specific dance and video project in Hamburg inspired by Franz Erhard Walther’s “Sieben Orte für Hamburg” (Seven Places for Hamburg) (1989) – a series of steel plates with engraved terms set into the ground at various street intersections in downtown Hamburg. The plates are not statues; you can’t trip over them. They are inconspicuously integrated into the cityscape and only when you look down can you see the plates and terms. “I see what you don’t see” wants to achieve the same through dance. Here the plate is the space: how much or how little space do we take in the city? What kind of paths do we take? What kind of people do we meet? Are we just walking from A to B? Or are there opportunities to linger? What other experiences can we have? How narrow is the space? How large? What happens when several people come together and dance? SPACE is a very broad concept. How can we understand it in dance and in the city?
