About the Project
City Walks Mumbai 2010 is a project of the cross-culturally oriented ConCom series at LIA – Lab Inter Arts, a series which brings people of different countries together and allows experimental performance ideas to develop on site in a joint development process.
City Walks Mumbai 2010 continues the interdisciplinary laboratory work this time in public spaces in Mumbai (formerly Bombay). The project series had begun in 2009 at the Kala Academy Goa/India (see ConCom Goa 2009). The situational phenomena encountered on site will provide both framework conditions and challenges.
The laboratory work comprises exercises in perception to be found at living spaces and selected places in Mumbai: living areas, streets, squares, bridges, train stations. The process of encountering begins with listening, observing and sensing in order to get into resonance with a place and its people.
