“In which ways do we inscribe ourselves in, break or transmit our heritages?” “Un|Controlled Gestures‘” third edition is looking for the traces of memory in the body and the city. Choreographers from the MENA region will question their practice of movement and dance in order to bring gestures that otherwise go unnoticed into the visibility of performing arts.
