Asphalt Piloten

Dance video


ASPHALT PILOTEN is a company of unbridled artists from different artistic and geographic backgrounds who are driven to create for creationʼs sake. It is an artistic open cell designed as an inventive space where multidisciplinary encounters inspire one another. They aspire to experiment with structural forms, to explore differences, prompt encounters, curiosity and cultural openness.
TAPE RIOT performance is built on the reality of urban space and the daily flow of those who inhabit it. Initially it merely causes the onlookers' gaze to shift slightly, prompting silent curiosity: Is this normal? Is this real? Two dancers disrupt the pace of passersby pushing the degree of dissociation still further. Lines are drawn splitting the space ... Are they defining a frame of reference or opening up perspectives to the beyond.? Sounds intermingle and the roadsigns blend in; the traffic flow has switched direction . This dynamism triggers the strange sensation of having seen the urban space quite differently and with a smile... Did it change our way of looking at things? Or just our point of view?
