New People 3.0 – UNDERGROUND VII at Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch
28, 29 November 2019
New People 3.0 is a fifteen minute performative experiment and the result of several months research into performativity as social practice. It was the utopian wish to create an ensemble dance work using sustainable and healthy ways of collaborating: an experiment which ultimately failed. New People 3.0 is about the hunger to be strangers to the old ways of working and to our own corporal archives, foreign to our hierarchies, new comers to our own habits, a way to search for a beginning.
