Bewegtes Land (Moving Landscapes) //

Performances for passing trains

Travelling - formerly a symbol for an encounter with the unknown - has become a virtual bridging of space. High-tech transportation stands for rapid connections. However, it separates travelers from the land they cross.

«Bewegtes Land» ( Moving Landscapes ) makes the intended controversial attempt to oppose speed. Along the railway line Jena Paradies - Naumburg the artist duo Datenstrudel arranges a performance of encounters. Travelers meet local people, speed meets slowness, urban life meets the idyllic countryside. Passengers get drawn into a truly different world and wonder to what extent the train's speed might have an impact on perception.

All the spectators need is a valid ticket for the train.
