This October the Tanztheater Wuppertal will be continuing the project UNDERGROUND, originally conceived for the PINA40 anniversary season. Once again the dancers will be leaving the stage, taking risks, experimenting, and investigating unfamiliar spaces in Wuppertal and its surroundings. First stop, during PINA40, was the elephant house at Wuppertal Zoo, followed by the buildings and outside spaces used by the company Riedel. UNDERGROUND III now sees an artistic intervention at the multi-storey car park at Wicküler Park.

With its mixture of historic brewery architecture and a modern shopping centre, Wuppertal's Wicküler Park provides an ideal site for the Tanztheater Wuppertal's dancers to realise their ongoing project. Following completion of the current modernisation works the building will be relaunched this autumn under its new name 'Wicküler City'.
