What do I call myself? rural? urban? why?

Marisa I consider myself a rural person following the vibrations and the rhythms of the city. The urban dance shakes up a little bit the harmony of my rural breath.  And I feel alive.

Teya Urban. I grew up in a town outside of the city, but since I left I have always lived in cities. Freedom and aninomity that come from living in a more urban area is something that plays a big part in my identity and day-to-day experiences.

Marie-Lena Urban. I always lived in a city, I like to be with a lot of different people in a small space and to deal with differences/diversity, observing people, how they deal with trouble or to how different cultures meet. I think we can grow through urban space.

David More urban. I like to have people around me.

Dariya Urban. I am from St. Petersburg in Russia, I grew up in this atmosphere – many people, many cultures, many possibilities, share with another your ideas and learn a lot of things.

Question of the Day. Day Five.

What is special about (this) Framewalk and why?

The participants. When you look at the consultation, you see people of colour to 95 percent but 55 percent of them were German. People get irritated when I show them a picture of this particular framewalk group, because they don’t see ‚Germans‘. This makes this group special… The constellation is a walking statement. Germany is not white. Jack

Sleeping together in the studio. It was fun. The idea of ladies and gentleman sleeping together in one small room. It was fun and nice to wake up in the night and see so many people sleeping side by side. Sometimes some of the German participant even came and joined us. Sometimes we just argued till after 12 midnight. Esther

The topic encounter. This is because though this topic I learnt how to accommodate people in their given space and socialize with them. Prince
