Splendid Chaos is a series of collaborative interventions on the line 16 tram from Breslauer Platz/Hauptbahnhof station in Cologne to Universität/Markt station in Bonn.

The core of the artistic research is the movement of the Judson Dance Theater, the post-modern perception of music and dance, site-specific actions and the integration of activities that have hitherto not been seen as dance-related such as site-specific actions or games.

Splendid Chaos links music, movement and visual art and uses random, indeterminate or task-based methods for the development of (motion) material.

It was presented as a part of KOLLABORATIONEN, American Postmodern Dance / Music / Sound on September 10th 2016 prior to the performance Dance of Lucinda Childs at the Bonn Opera.
