The Exchange

Dana Caspersen and MDKollektiv

Guest performance Tanzbiennale Heidelberg
Guest performance Tanzbiennale Heidelberg

»The Exchange« is an interactive public event on the theme of violence that uses practices from the fields of choreographic thinking and conflict transformation. In this event, there is no performance and no audience, instead simple actions such as walking, sitting, and talking become tools for reflection and interaction as participants consider: What role do we play in creating or dissolving systems of polarisation and violence?

The Michael Douglas Kollektiv (MDK) has gained a lot of experience in the past years in exploring collaborative artistic productions and developing collective participatory methods for creating their performances. Together with conflict specialist and choreographer Dana Caspersen (USA), the MDK has produced two public dialogues in which choreography and conflict resolution meet, dedicated to understanding polarisation and hatred and preventing violence.
