In Public Space Suitable for english audience

Dance for Sale

Platzhaus is located both on the outskirts and right in the middle of Helmholtzplatz, a former public bathroom facility that has developed into a neighborly place within the neighborhood where people with low socio-economic potential can also experience social participation.

This year, Grupo Oito invite the audience to joint them at a dance market. The principle is simple: whoever comes in looks around and decides how much they want to pay. Everyone else remains outside. Dance for Sale researches dance as a production and simultaneously functions as a manifesto: it celebrates the autonomy of art over institutional hurdles and cultural policy decisions. Grupo Oito is a dance collective that has been active in Berlin for more than 12 years. The team consists of professional dancers with five different nationalities and various cultural backgrounds.
