SHARING ACROSS BORDERS #2
International Dance Network Festival
The international, innovative festival for dance performance and networking SHARING ACROSS BORDERS will take place for the second time.
On three festival days, SHARING is all about dialogue and the coming together of artists, young talents and the public. ACROSS BORDERS refers to our mission to build an international network. The PITCH (IM)PERFECT format offers young artists a platform to present their own work to experienced performers and thus to help them further develop their ideas. The ehrenfeldstudios invite its national and international partners from their studiotrade network to create a space for dialogue and exchange with six young performing talents.
Come join us for a weekend of discussing and performing at shows, talks, workshops and party!
19.30 DANCE PERFORMANCES
BAAL | GINOIDE (Spain)
Year 2029. GINOIDE is a robot with female resemblance. „Nana“ was built following rules set by a neoliberal society. Rules that our bodies, real or fake, have to obey. GINOIDE, will make us think about sentimental and sexual relationships. Where is humanity heading to? What will happen to the reproduction of our species? The performers Catalina Carrasco and Gaspar Morey present GINOIDE together with their son Max.
Performance: Catalina Carrasco, Gaspar Morey, Max Carrasco
YELENA ARAKELOW (PHYSICAL félagið) | WAITING FOR A DANCE (Island)
What do we experience in the state of waiting? If we wait together, can we collectively experience a desire for change? Unfolding time through repetition and nothingness increases
the anticipation for something to happen. Perhaps something we don’t yet know …

20.00 DANCE PERFORMANCE
LOW AIR Vilnius city dance theatre | Me Two / We, The Clique (Lithuania)
A group of young dancers share their experiences of growing up between developing queer identities, sexual harassment and power abuse. The performance portraits personal perspectives and conveys the importance of open discussion in creating a sense of belonging and community within The Clique. The audience is invited to revisit vibrant teen-hood, through the lens of the spectator, a parent, a teacher, and a decision-maker, and to reflect on the boundaries of power in interpersonal and intergenerational relationships.

21.30 CHAT – CHOP – CHEERS!
Ain’t no party like a kitchen party! According to this principle, we provide performers, young artists and the public a space to get curious, to get to know each other better and to exchange ideas and experiences informally while we prepare dinner all together. After dinner, it’s time to hit the dancefloor!
