Starting-point: Where the Talvera/Isarco rivers meet at the yellow foot and cycle bridge
Sööt/Zeyringer developed the performance Semiotics of the Riverside together with a group of city residents, which will be presented on the 10th of June along the rivers in Bolzano.
In public spaces we perceive a multitude of contradictory feelings, such as community, belonging, power, fear and insecurity. The performance takes as its starting point the fear that many people experience along the riverside. The performance temporarily changes the perception of the riverbanks and symbolically and actively empowers those people who are exposed to harassment and experiences of violence in public spaces.
