DOOHICKEY (DINGSBUMS) – a dance and sound performance for everyone from the age of 2 | tanzfuchs PRODUKTION

They shine, rattle, are cold, they don’t even move – and yet these things exude a great fascination. Everyday kitchen helpers are often just as exciting for children to discover as their colourful toys. What could it look like if this world of things came to life, danced and sounded? In „DOOHICKEY („DINGSBUMS“)“, tanzfuchs PRODUKTION turns its attention to the metal everyday helpers in the kitchen and transforms them into a clattering orchestra: it rattles and sounds, clatters and jumps, gyrates and dances. Familiar objects suddenly develop a life of their own, become fellow dancers, mirror images. The three performers explore, feel and experience this world of things – and connect with them: they become extensions of their bodies, disappear under their clothes. Things, people and movements magically merge with each other, giving rise to entirely new hybrid beings.

At various stations of (video) image, sound, language and movement, the visitors themselves become actors in the space. Before the installation can be experienced in public at the Mediathek Krefeld from 16 to 21 May, there will be an opportunity to view it at the ehrenfeldstudios. Afterwards, everyone is invited to discuss the installation with the artists at Soavi’s LIVING ROOM. Dr Anne-Kathrin Reif will be the moderator.

Schlalalalaufen​ – A mobile thread game by Barbara Fuchs for kids from 3 years on 

A production of Consol Theatre Gelsenkirchen

Street cradle cat’s eye, run sneak loop: Here everything runs on a string, a dancer and a dancer, up and down, criss-cross. They stretch strings, wind and tangle themselves and others, spin patterns and paths and lead the spectators through ever-changing landscapes.

The thread games known in many cultures are the basis of inspiration for this mobile dance piece. From the hands they are transferred to other parts of the body and the audience is also included to play the whole space.  Patterns are given and received, something falls, something works, everything transforms and everyone is connected to everyone else.

It is a fun, collaborative piece that encourages complex movement and collective thinking.

cProgrammreihe NachWieVor | dance performance & age(ing)

As part of the networking and exchange project NachWieVor | Tanzperformance & Alter(n) / “dance performance & age(ing)”, curated by Barbara Fuchs and Silke Z., we are looking forward to the participatory AudioWalk by the ensemble DanceOn60+ from Munich. Together with artists, scientists and our intergenerational audience, we would like to take a look at age(ing) in this series.



Introductory workshop with AudioWalk in public space Andrea Marton (Munich)


Put on your headphones and dance away! DanceOn60+ gets the audience moving: People of all ages are invited to enter into a dance dialogue with each other and with the urban space through the AudioWalk. Each person separately and yet together, the participants are guided through the AudioWalk and Dance with headphones. Andrea Marton’s concept underlines her concern to enable the cultural participation of all people.

Improvisation presentation


Caroline Simon continues her research into solo dance improvisation: Together with her guests Stéphanie Auberville (BE) and Bryce Kasson (US/DE), she follows her dance improvisation practice. Three performers, one stage: after a week of research, they present the results of their joint practice. In this performance evening of short improvisations, they open the door to her artistic practice and explore the unknown, the unplanned, the surprising, allowing searching and not-knowing.
