TanzPlan Ost - Periphery as a Place for Radical Openness

6 companies visit 8 towns and connect Eastern Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein.

Foofwa d'Imobilité – «Dancewalk – Am Rand»

The renowned Geneva choreographer Foofwa d'Imobilité is coming to Eastern Switzerland for the first time with his format «Dancewalk». 

Dancewalk is, as the name suggests, a walking dance, it connects people and places. It realizes a new, choreographic relationship to duration and space, moves in a period of many hours and thinks in distances of hundreds of kilometers. It interacts with the environment in a way that is hardly possible for dance on stage. Its "set design" is constantly changing, passers-by become audience or participants, a direct relationship with the unpredictability of life.

Foofwa d'Imobilité developed the «Dancewalk – Am Rand» for TanzPlan Ost, consisting of three parts that connect our venues – peripheral and central – in a dancing way. The igniter of several movements is a first Dancewalk, which brings Foofwa together with the TanzPlan Ost artists from Klöntal to Glarus. While Foofwa d'Imobilité's company Neopost Foofwa moves from this starting point in a 5-day Dancewalk to our premiere location St. Gallen, the artists pass on their knowledge to local ambassadors. These in turn will lead the companies to their region with a local Dancewalk.

TanzPlan Ost invites you to join, live on the street and in the internet or as a spectator at the opening with the performance «Dancewalk – Retroperspectives», a review of all Dancewalks of the past 5 years, including the TanzPlan Ost-Dancewalks.

The Dancewalks with Neopost Foofwa can be followed live on social media: www.facebook.com/tanzplanost
