In the frame of Dance Research NRW the collective fanni fraktal worked for three months at Brotfabrik Bonn. On the basis of two examples - carnival and public political speeches – the research dealt with dynamics of collectivity, how collective energy can be generated and which physical states it implies. The main aspects of these concrete examples were translated into abstract principles like (des)crescendo and constant repetition and used for the work with different media.
