The installation negotiates issues of class, gender and migration. In a subtle way it plays with conventions of fashion shows and refers to a current phenomenon in which so-called "workwear" finds its way into high fashion contexts. What's classy if you're rich, but trashy if you're poor?

Coming of Age

Age is just a number – yet there is no getting around aging. In the midst of debates about the climate movement, identity politics, and body image, it is time to renegotiate long-established generational contracts. Not only has the recent pandemic history shown that questions of responsibility and solidarity need to be revisited. 
The performance festival COMING OF AGE, which will take place from September 15 to November 7 at Sophiensæle, is dedicated to various facets of aging in society - and looks at the different challenges of a phenomenon that affects us all.

Raus aus dem Kopf, rein in den Körper Workshop für mehr Bewegung und Körperlichkeit

Online Workshop
2020 October 29 | 18.00
Online
In German

Our body: In pandemic times, to some of us it seems vulnerable and threatened. Has it stored enough confidence and strength in all those bones, tendons and muscles to cope with it?
In the one-hour online workshop we explore our physical awareness and make friends with our body again. We uncover blockages and resistances, let it sweat for a moment and then let ourselves fall into relaxation. After all we focus on our perception: How does our body feel after the completed effort?

We recommend attending one of the We Bodies performances on October 30 or 31 as a follow-up to the movement workshop.

The workshop is held in German. No previous knowledge is necessary, just a space with enough room to move. To participate, you must download the Zoom software and agree to its privacy policy. The number of participants is limited.

Please register until October 28 at presse@sophiensaele.com or 030 27 89 00 35.
