In the urban environment premises are empty, right before renovation or demolishing.As unique as the shape and dimensions of urban renewal projects, DanceCity wants to create a documentary account from the perspective from the old and new inhabitants. Not a snapshot view, but a city chronicle about people in a changing city.
The architecture of the old and new buildings combined with the stories of the people that lived, loved and worked in them form the starting point for the locational choreography.
For the first and the last time we commemorate the changing shape of the city. Past and future ‘history’ is honoured in a contemporary shape of dance and music.
Besides the live performance interviews with old and new inhabitants that were forming the basics of the story are filmed. For every performance there will be a filmed account to be viewed through our own web based television channel.
