2010 Landgang ‘Shore Leave’

The 25th anniversary of the Schengen Agreement gave the incentive for the ‘Tour of Melody’. The ‘Shore Leave’ performance group was musically connecting the four Quatropole cities, Trier, Metz, Saarbrücken and Luxembourg with a boat trip starting in Schengen. With reference to the Fluxus movement, 48 students from five different countries activated a collective Körpergedächniss. With their performances in the five different locations they were producing impressive visual and sound settings, which were bringing back memories of our most rudimentary and mutual roots.

Final Performance: European Art Academy, Trier
Figures: 48 students and 6 artists and educators from Germany, Poland, France, Luxembourg and Mexico
