What is dance? What can dance be? Which bodies dance?

Schwanensee in Sneakers (12+)

Anna Till & Nora Otte (Dresden)  

21 – 22 Mar 2024 | Explore dance – Dance for young audience Young dance

The solo performance Schwanensee in Sneakers (Swan Lake in Sneakers) opens our eyes to the multifaceted forms of dance and the power of transformation inherent in every body. In this sense, the piece sees itself as a fun and creative exchange of knowledge for young people, passing on different dance perspectives and movement. What is dance? What can dance be? Which bodies dance? The dancer Anna Till moves in a mix of styles that change from everyday movements to grotesque, from the classical to the experimental. Historical movement material meets contemporary form. Is waiting for the bus actually also dance?

Schwanensee in Sneakers was selected for the German Dance Platform 2024.

Wed 20 + Thu 21 March 2024: Pop Up in schools
