Megalopolis
Constanza Macras | DorkyPark

Dance

Megalopolis, the globalised city: It's dominated by unbridled growth, decay and dissolution. The city's tight and narrow spaces cause the borders between private and public spheres to disappear. At the same time, this forces people to see the city as a system made up of innumerable biographical fragments. The battle between two street vendors fighting over the best spot is an existential confrontation today, and yet it will be forgotten tomorrow. Megacities are a paradigm for the spaces in which people live together without knowing one another. Their bodies are instruments that create systems and rules, and then destroy them. Omnipresent surveillance creates a new kind of self-perception. Will urban development follow principles that are completely unknown to us? How does the decay of social relationships relate to the decay in our cities?

In 2010, Constanza Macras received the FAUST German theatre award for the choreography of Megalopolis.

A production by Constanza Macras | DorkyPark and Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz, in co-production with HELLERAU – Europäisches Zentrum der Künste and MESS Sarajevo.
