Short Introduction to the B_Tour festival before the Audiodrom
During 3 days, the B_Tour festival offers to rethink Berlin through a series of 17 guided artistic urban tours. The festival begins with the Audiodrom, an audio walk suggesting to discover the Velodrome Park through an acoustic approach. The tour is preceded with a short introduction by the festival artistic directors, and followed with an exchange between artist and participants. A panel in the evening with Christin Prätor (Artistic Director B_Tour) and Yael Sherill (Artistic Director B_Tour) is offered to complete the reflexion.1 The participants discover the park through an acoustic approach.
Before the tour begins, Christin Prätor and Yael Sherill, B_Tour Festival artistic directors, give a short introduction to the festival and the Audiodrom, an atmospheric experience, in which the participants take centre stage. Guided by a speaker they walk alone, one by one, through different areas of the park, they discover acoustic situations which irritate the perception and inspire the imagination. After taking the tour the audience is invited to engage in an open discussion with the artist in which she will share her motivation and creative process and discuss some technical aspects of her work. The tour will also be followed by a public panel talk about urban matters and similar artistic practices.
Tickets for the tour (6 Euros) can be bought directly as the tour begins – a reservation is requested under Booking(at)b-tour.org. For the tour, all equipment will be provided by the author. If they prefer, the audience may bring their own headphones.
