The monthly FREIRAUM Salons serve the open exchange and interdisciplinary networking of the local and national scene. Experts from a wide range of genres meet in an informal setting at the Düsseldorf premises. If analog contacts are difficult due to the pandemic, the salons are offered digitally. The content of the Salons changes between specific topics or questions or rather open get-togethers networking formats. The current artistic research and activities of the company, but also of the FREIRAUM community, can be reflected in the content of the salons. A new space of discourse opens up between peer reviews, small presentations, networking events of the scene or invited expert talks.

Verena Brakonier – Class Matters
Input & Workshop

Supported by various scholarships and residencies at PACT Zollverein, Verena Brakonier has been researching the topic of classism, discrimination based on class origin and class affiliation since 2019. In Salon #30, the Hamburg-based dancer and choreographer will provide insights into her artistic and activist working methods. Among other things, the content will deal with classism and one’s own privileges, as well as possible physical approaches. No training clothing or special prior knowledge is required.
