Be there, do this – visitor scores
2,5km gaffa tape between the new and the old entrance of Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin and a 60x40cm dipond board with score and text from a high viewing point (the conference room of the musuem)
presented during "Die Schule der Distanz" for Immersion Festival by Berlinerfestpiele, 18.–20.11.2016
“Be there, do this” is a choreographic-installative series for the public space by the Brussels-based artist David Helbich. He calls his scores “self-performative” arrangements and sequences. They invite us to see physical co-presence in rooms as an active mode: Do something (if you want to)! Sharing a space always means acting with each other in a choreographic way. But: How do rules emerge? What is the relationship between playing and discipline? And to what extent do rooms predetermine our actions? Helbich renders explicit what usually stays hidden.
More info, photos and video will be uploaded soon.
