„on“ GenerationSmartphone .jpg


As a result of my participation in Distanz-Solo 2021, I researched the role of smartphones in the lives of young people in the Uckermark region. Through interviews with seven young people and three families, I sought to understand how intensive use of smartphones and messenger services impacts social interaction and language use. From this research, I began working on a dance piece that would translate electronic chat communication into movements and choreographies.


To develop this dance piece Idea, I collaborated with break dancer Lukas Steltner and combined elements of urban and contemporary dance, as well as ideas from slapstick and humor. The fusion of these styles presents an exciting opportunity to bring contemporary dance closer to the audience and explore new forms of presenting urban dance.

Our goal is to create an open, modular dramaturgy with improvisable elements and a stage format that allows for interactive dialogue with the young audience. The encounters during our first research have left us curious to continue developing our dance styles and exploring new avenues of expression.
