language: DE / EN //number of participants: 15 // Participants follow the performers Petra Zanki and Britta Wirthmüller through Leipzig’s historically Jewish quarter Waldstraßenviertel. This tour in silence, based on a true story in collaboration with writer and actor Rolf Kralowitz, is a choreography of everyday movements, views and gestures. Slowly it reveals parts of the area’s forgotten past. Through a kaleidoscope of memories, reminiscences and associations the city and its history can be experienced in a new way.
