There are scientists who say that we live in the age of aluminum. If we look around us, we can only agree. We are surrounded by aluminum objects, the material transports us through the world and is contained in all kinds of food, cosmetics and medicines. which dances – a choreographic assemblage speculates with the material, takes up ecological contexts and throws itself into a poetry of living together, a community to come, in which different nature-cultures meet. Following the need for solidary action, we explore transversal alliances. which dances – a choreographic assemblage is science & fiction, performance & exhibition and asks the future to dance.

Engaging with the interpenetration of worlds and bodies, we explore how bodies inscribe themselves into the world, which in turn shape bodies in their environment. We follow the traces of light reflections and plasticity of aluminum and use the spatial architecture of the Volkskundemuseum as a place where we initiate processes, let them take place and participate in them; – visitors are also very welcome to do so.
