STUDIO URBANISTAN is a Leipzig-based label for performative incidents in urban space, representing the joint works of Clara Minckwitz and Julia Lehmann. Since 2014 we have been creating new experiential and encounter spaces between audio tour, site-specific performance and research theatre, in collaboration with changing artists, producers, performers and/or the local population.
In a ballet for four “mothers” in bulldozers on a waste ground, we question the place of parents in the working world; in a rough setting with big machines. We clear away, we dig deep, we shovel away and pile up again. There’s also a lot that has to come out after the pandemic. The bulldozers do their work stoically, the parents inside are allowed to shout themselves out, let their rage out in earthy force and embody other, unheard voices.
