Hair is an expression of one's personality, a signal of cultural, religious and social affiliation. It symbolizes the intimate and animalistic character of human nature. The internationally active Cologne-based artists Angie Hiesl and Roland Kaiser developed a project in public space based on "hair" using dance, theatre, performance art and installations. Their project partner was the Living Dance Studio, an independent Chinese dance company that performs at venues around the world. This project was produced in Beijing and Cologne with several performances in the Eigelstein-Viertel in Cologne and in the district Caochangdi in Beijing.
