In the choreographic audio walk TURN - Cartography of a Movement the audience becomes flâneuses, strolling between the inscribed routes and the desire paths of the Hasenheide. Continuous and contradictory stories are linked here to form ever new maps: over 200 years ago, boys and men did gymnastics in the Hasenheide to create a people's body. In doing so, they formed not only their own bodies but also the idea of German nationalism. Today, the Hasenheide with its winding paths and wide meadows opens up space for relaxation, athletic self-optimization, cruising and drugs. TURN - Cartography of a Movement superimposes the past and present of the park from a queer and anti-fascist perspective and searches for the possibilities of a common dis-orientation.
