After experiencing the lock-down of cultural life, in LOST BODIES – URBAN ENCOUNTERS, dancers reinhabited diverse cultural locations in Heidelberg. From September 10 to 12, INTER-ACTIONS presented 27 short performances in three days. For this, the dancers Gabriele Ascani, Ismaël Belabid-Lenoir, Fran Martinez, Elvan Tekin, Jacqueline Trapp and TingAn Ying learned an improvisation method that directed their physical impulses to the environment and made each performance a unique experience. The audience had the opportunity to follow them and discover dance in places like Kunstverein Heidelberg, Völkerkundemuseum, Haus am Wehrsteg, Halle02, Fensterplatz, Breidenbach Studios and Karlstorbahnhof Heidelberg. Photographer Alexander Ehhalt accompanied the exciting process. The selection from over 1000 photos can be seen on billboards throughout Heidelberg until the beginning of October. From October 8, an exhibition will follow in the Haus am Wehrsteg.
