Concrete Wonder

A Performance by: 
Claudia Bosse with PPS Public Performance School / theatercombinat

Saturday, September 2nd  //  7 pm

With CONCRETE WONDER, the artist and choreographer Claudia Bosse, together with the participants of PUBLIC PERFORMANCE SCHOOL extended, develops a performance of various formations and structures on the concrete surfaces of the former university of economics. Performative organisms emerge among the bodies involved, the architectural structure, and the pioneer plants, which find their way through the sealed ground. The performance is a walkable collective practice as an invocation of "other" spaces.

PPS is an intergenerational school initiated by theatercombinat with amateurs and artists for the continuous exploration and learning of performative practices.

The PPS, which has been in existence since autumn 2021, is led by Claudia Bosse and brings together people between the ages of 20 and 80 in a continuous constellation every two months. PPS experiments with bodies, voices, and spaces, making them resonate with choreographic tools and linguistic interventions. The PUBLIC PERFORMANCE SCHOOL extended opens annually to interested individuals with an expanded program and public performance. This is the first cooperation between PUBLIC PERFORMANCE SCHOOL and the Architecture Summer School.

Claudia Bosse. 
In landscapes, architectures, or urban spaces, Claudia Bosse's site-specific works create poetic subversions between installation, choreography, theater, social rituals, and forms of assembly. In her artistic condensations, she deals with myths, forms of violence, concrete utopias, and ecological thinking.

Theatercombinat is a nomadic production organism for internationally produced independent art and theater works under the direction of the artist and choreographer Claudia Bosse. Theatercombinat collaborates both within and outside Europe on site-specific collaborations with various institutions, initiatives, and artists.
