The third project created as a part of BERLIN_cultural forum_WROCŁAW – a meeting of creators and organizers of culture from Wrocław and Berlin, whose aim is to network and co-create projects combining different disciplines of art.
Everyone’s meeting at the station.
The dance continues and our journey is about to begin or has just ended. The inspiration for the search is the “essence of transit“, penetration and movement, co-creating our contemporary liquid reality. More and more people, for personal, professional, political or economic reasons, are on the road and in constant motion.
The show will begin at the Ostkreuz railway station in Berlin before the train to Culture leaves for Wrocław around 12:30. It will be continued on the train to Culture and at intermediate stations and after the arrival to Wrocław. The final is planned again in the evening at the Ostkreuz station in Berlin.
