The workshop takes place in spring 2017 (April - June), inviting residents to create a performance together for the festival and to find a creative common language.
The workshop series is designed for residents of all-ages, different backgrounds & with or without prior dance experience. It brings together communities, generations, cultures and artists with non-artists, aiming to get people moving together, inspire dialogue & integration through dance, and awaken their creative powers. Through different dance techniques and a toolbox of movement based exercises and games, the facilitators (Kinematik Dance Theater) guide the participants to create a performance together, which they will present in the festival, providing them a platform to be performing alongside professional dance companies.
