AUGENBLICKSVERKNÜPFUNG – PUNKT EMOTIONALER DICHTE
Tangency – Stadtverortungen, Osnabrück
The performance “Linking Moments – Emotional Point of Density” in public and over the rooftops of Osnabrück, measuring urban topology and social fields. Stella Geppert applies land surveying technology to the complexity of assessing a space, using the Neumarkt in Osnabrück as a model. What is the impact of making social contact from close up, from far away? How long does it take for eye contact to be made? How do social spheres relate to the big picture – to planet Earth? This “being moved through the act of measurement” will be translated into choreography and explored as a gauge of emotional intensity. The space-defining elements and their effects begin to resonate.
