groove space series (2014-16)

The performance series /groove space was an artistic experiment in various cities. The organisational principles of club dance identified in Matthias’ research on groove were transferred into the performing arts context as choreographic structures and helped to artistically investigate urban spaces. The groove spaces applied the observed dynamics of the club as a choreographic means. Hence, groove space investigated how audience movements could also induce movements of the performers and test if a groove dynamic could be created outside of the club context.
