In June 2018 Julian Weber is spending in the apap production studio berlin and starts working on the solo SIGHT SEEING which will be seen in the frame of Open Spaces#3 2018 in October (1st-4th) at Tanzfabrik Berlin.
In his solo „sight seeing“ Julian Weber explores the fragility of a multidimensional corporeality. A new revolution is moving us to the edge of a workerless world. The fear of invisibility in our digitized world becomes a driving force for physical and choreographic questions: How can the corporal experience of a medial disembodiment be sustained? What kind of impact does the permanent updating on the body have? What strategies can a body develop to remain visible in a context of hyper-digital consume? Alongside these questions the issue of what defines a human and what constitutes the nonhuman is addressed, which leads inevitably to the problematic of the anthropocentric view.
The recently highly visible and significant human impact on the earth's geology, including climate change, has motivated scientists to propose a new epoch, titled Anthropocene. This new area claims that the impact became so influencel that humanity can be understood as a geological force. In sight seeing this understanding is used to destabilise and move away from the anthropocentric view. Seeing human equal to nature allows new perspectives on our selfs and our construction of history. The work establishes together with the audience a temporary society and invites the spectators on a sightseeing tour around themselves.
