11 June 2022 | 12 am – 2 pm  free workshop CiM “Dance for All” (all levels, mixed-abled)

On the topic of inclusion & participation

An inclusive dance piece for everybody from age 8 and up          by CiM – Companhia de Dança (Portugal) in cooperation with the programme series QUERFELDEIN with dance pieces for a young audience

Human Geography investigates the relationship between people and their environment in different places. In the choreography HUMAN GEOGRAPHY by Ana Rita Barata, the performers enter a space together – their bodies become points of reference for each other as well as for the things and movements in this space. They create a living, constantly changing map of different surfaces, landscapes and territories. How do the bodies and things relate to each other in space? How do they change common territories? HUMAN GEOGRAPHY is the surveying of a space with different bodies that inscribe their traces in the memory of this place.

CiM – dance Company promotes a pioneering approach to artistic creation in the spirit of inclusion through dance and image. The company develops regular training and awareness that focuses on the movement specificities and unique expressiveness of each dancer/performer and promotes a vision of the idea of capacity and boundaries through choreography that reveals diversity as a driving force.

WITH US – Episode 1:

Before the performances, Silke Z. & die metabolisten develop an intergenerational dance perspective on the guest performance HUMAN GEOGRAPHY: In Episode 1, Karel (65) and David (25) meet.

HUMAN GEOGRAPHY is the first guest performance in the DIVERSITY series on the theme of inclusion & participation.
In the next two years, the guest performance series curated by Silke Z. and die metabolisten will present national and international dance productions that deal with the themes of inclusion & participation, gender & sexuality, privilege, appreciation & racism, age, everyday life & visibility. In this format, topics of the diversity discourse are explicitly anchored in the repertoire in order to make their visibility sustainably effective.
