EXPLOSION DER STILLE - a silent chorus

EXPLOSION DER STILLE – a silent chorus (EXPLOSION OF SILENCE – a silent chorus) gathers a group of around 100 people of all ages and linguistic backgrounds and with diverse ways of life at one place and forms a silent chorus, a formation that takes over the space and brings it to silence. In the course of the hour-long intervention, there is a choreographed sequence of movements, quotidian gestures and alterations of positions. After about 50 minutes, each chorus-participant begins to whisper loudly and recites his or her biography in his or her respective native language. Hereafter the formation dissolves and each person exits the space separately. EXPLOSION DER STILLE – a silent chorus conquers public space to negotiate social differences. Public space thereby becomes a temporary archive of a multicultural society.
