Radio-Choreography is a radiophonic archive of dance practices created by female choreographers during times of migration and border crossing.

Through a practice of live broadcasting, we transmit a multiplicity of times and places into the here and now of the radio. It is an intimate but untouchable dance, reaching deep inside from way out there. We meet through the fractures of radio. A transnational and cross-generational sisterhood is fueled by a desire to connect. We move on air, amplify nomadic narratives, inhabit new spaces for dance and render genealogies based on practices of listening.

Radio-Choreography includes a series of four episodes broadcasted live from dance archives in Berlin, Cologne, Tel Aviv and Vienna.

In the third episode, «Haunting the Archive» , we return to the German Dance Archive Cologne, and make it vibrate with unheard voices and invisible bodies from the local dance history.

This radio-performance is broadcasted live from the Tanzarchiv/Tanzmuseum im Mediapark, transmitted by dublab DE, and offered as a Public Listening Event at GOLD+BETON Ebertplatzpassagen.
