Konstellationen - 100 jahre bauhaus im westen

To mark a new commissioned piece of choreography by Rauf›RubberLegz‹-Yasit and Brigel Gjoka, William Forsythe has devised a film and installation programme focusing and expanding upon the visions of his co-creators Yasit and Gjoka. William Forsythe’s deep interest in the transformation and reflection of basic organisational principles has been the foundation of a broad range of artistic works: his installations and films, which Forsythe calls ›choreographic objects‹. In cooperation with Rauf›RubberLegz‹Yasit and Riley Watts, he is showing the video work ›Alignigung‹ (2016) at PACT – a dense observation tracing the almost sculptural, choreographic concentration of two bodies. In addition, a new choreographic object will be presented with ›Himmel und Hölle‹ (2019). Rauf›RubberLegz‹Yasit – the protagonist in ›Alignigung‹ – will also be following Forsythe‘s invitation to present his own video work ›Doomed‹ (2018).

Blue Skies - Bodies in trouble

The growing impact of technology on life as we know it brings changes to our bodies, our communities and the environment – what can we do? How can we understand and shape these changes collectively? Over the course of five days, PACT and medienwerk.nrw shine an investigative light on active interdisciplinary perspectives on new narratives, speculative visions of the future and alternative practices in the company of international artists, scientists, activists, publicists, students and audience members.

1/2/8 Forschungsfestival

In Spring 2017, PACT launched 1/2/8, a new, central and long-term research and development format with a special focus on the connection between knowledge and actions. The format offers substantial time and space for practices of cooperation between people, objects, space, technology and experimentation.

›PACT Café‹ is a friendly informal space where local families of all countries of origin can drop by for a hot drink and some good conversation whilst their children between the ages of 4 and 6 can join in playful dance and movement activities.

Initiated by PACT in close collaboration with the ›Arbeitskreis Kunst und Soziales‹ (Art and Social Engagement Working Group), the WerkStadt is a new local hub for open and ongoing communal discourse, activities and knowledge transfer.
