Die Anziehungskraft der Bäume


Audiowalk on the essay ‘Laubwerk’ by Marion Poschmann, winner of the WORTMELDUNGEN-Literaturpreis 2021.
Based on the essay ‘Laubwerk’ by Marion Poschmann, for which the author was awarded “WORTMELDUNGEN – Der Literaturpreis für kritische Kurztexte der Crespo Foundation” in 2021, choreographer Moritz Frischkorn and sound artist Kat Austen have developed an audio-walk in-between and in dialogue with city trees. The audience is invited to playfully move from one tree to the next, following the voices, sounds and choreographic proposals by the artists. ‘The Gravity of Trees’ awakens childhood memories, pays close attention to individual trees and creates a space in which listeners may be affected by the presence and rhythm of the trees in their vicinity. While walking, they also hear excerpts from Poschmann’s essay, a poetic reflection on our coexistence with trees. Thus, a new sense of the interconnectedness and co-dependence of human and arboreal city dwellers emerges
