African Dance - B - cancelled

Live-Workshop with Tchekpo Dan Agbetou
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2020/21

The existential connection to the floor and the significance that each movement of african dance holds, are at the base of an interplay of energy flows and holistic connections within the body. The rhythm of the music releases the manifold vibrations and articulations within the body that have shaped this dance form for many centuries and account for its uniqueness.

»Dance is not only a question of culture. It is the rhythm of heartbeats, the infinity of art and movement – the challenge to break boundaries. Traditional African Dance is a precious source of energy and expression.« Tchekpo Dan Agbetou

Live Percussion: Janos Crecelius, Till Bommer

Please note: The workshop will only take place live in the studio, if the situation allows it. Due to hygiene measures, the number of participants is currently limited to a maximum of 17 people and we therefore offer two groups. More detailed information about the measures will be continuously updated on the website and communicated by e-mail shortly before the workshop starts.
