TURN! is a document of a performance. It is a work of collective writing that describes the mass choreography that took place as an artistic experiment organized by Anna Hoetjes on 2 June 2011. One-hundred-and-fifty participants danced on the field of the central stadium in Leipzig, Germany. This stadium used to be the arena for socialist mass gymnastics during the GDR. Today it’s a commercial football stadium.
For this publication, all participants and collaborators of the performance were asked to describe a part of their experience from the “I” perspective. Fifty of them responded. Their writings form one big subjective body of the memories, associations, and relations that the performance evoked.
