›Claiming Common Spaces IV: Cool Down‹

The festival ›Claiming Common Spaces‹ by the Alliance of International Production Houses will take place this year from 20. – 26.06.  at PACT Zollverein in Essen and from 01. – 09.07. at HELLERAU - European Centre for the Arts in Dresden.

The fourth edition of ›Claiming Common Spaces‹ is a festival, thematic platform and working meeting all at once. Under the motto ›Cool Down‹, it focuses on our interaction with planet Earth. The climate crisis calls for radical rethinking and action in all fields of social and political activity. Whether in economics, education, technology, urban and landscape planning, or culture – we urgently need new conditions and practices for a future worth living in and for coexistence with human and non-human actors.

With a series of dance and theatre productions, installations, participatory performances, panels, and interactive workshops, ›Claiming Common Spaces IV: Cool Down‹ invites contributors and visitors alike to reflect, participate, take action and engage aesthetically with the challenges of today. Sensual, physically and emotionally activating spaces of experience and discourse are intended to encourage people to think about a new way of living together, to expand their options for action and agency, to exploit the potential of art and to take a stance on the climate crisis.
