DANCE HOUSE IN THE ENGINE SHED

REHEARSAL BUILDING AND DANCE THEATRE, LEIPZIG (GER), 2008-2010

First of all it was a place at which movement was made motionless, now it is to become a place at which new movement is created and brought to life. An historic engine shed of the Halle-Sorau-Guben Railway will be transformed into a dancing house.

The ruinous condition of this witness to German industrial history, which is a protected site and has not been used since 1990, is alarming. Nevertheless, the big rooms are equally inspired by the dancers and choreographs of the Dance Theater to create a new centre here for over 350 dancing enthusiasts.
