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