9th October, 19:00
Location: ehrenfeldstudios Cologne
Eric Eggert presents the film Duvarlar-Mauern-Walls by Can Candan / Screening (US 2000, 84′, OmU) and moderated talk
In the frame of the Productions Series “Politics and Geometry” with Surround and My Body Is Your Body:
The motto of this year’s Day of German Unity is “Only with you”. At the same time, one can sense that the “we” of this unity is becoming increasingly controversial. Keeping with this, we want to take a look at Can Candan’s documentary Duvarlar-Mauern-Walls, in which the migrant perspectives on the fall of the Wall are documented. Afterwards, there will be room for a joint discussion.
We are happy to announce that our performance “Surround” was awarded with the 10.000 Euro “Ground support” by the Festival Jury Favoriten Festival NRW 2018 and it is nominated for the Leipziger Bewegungskunstpreis 2018

Overhead Project was nominated as a promising talent of the dance scene 2018!
“(…)Two lateral entrants, two stage artists, who have not trained as dancers at all, but as artists, who have never learned ballet, but rather flying, catching, throwing, standing on top of each other, building human towers – these two of them have respectfully, originally extended a piece of dance history into the present, even the future, and paid the best possible tribute to the legacy. (…)”
