SCHRITTWEISE is a participatory walking choreography and performance intervention in public space that comes into being through the creative participation of the audience. An audio guide consisting of short spoken instructions invites the audience to participate in the choreography, which does not require any prior knowledge. For the duration of one hour, the participants listen to instructions and contribute to the overall event through their individual interpretation. A performative field is created in which everyone is simultaneously actor and spectator.

Walking is an everyday activity. It is a universal experience, spanning individuals and cultures. Walking, we establish relationships: between here and there, towards and away from, next to, behind, along with … We walk in different ways and for the most diverse purposes. Walking creates a basis from which we can meet and collectively experience and form the world.

SCHRITTWEISE is a game that is played both individually and in a group.
Step by step, maybe your walking becomes strange …

Participants receive MP3 players with a pre-produced audio guide on site.
