THE DIVERSE BODY

THE DIVERSE BODY

the diverse body

Dance research labs for people 60+

As part of the multi-year artistic project THE EMPATHIC BODY by choreographer Silke Z. and the transgenerative ensemble die metabolisten, four dance labs for the generation Ü60 will be offered in 2022 under the title THE DIVERSE BODY.

Embedded in a dance series focusing on diversity in society, to which international dance performances are invited, Silke Z. and ensemble members of the metabolists offer a dance laboratory for all people over 60.

Everything revolves around the themes of empathy, language and the body!
The dance labs are dedicated to physical and artistic research at eye level and open up a protected space in which the positions of the generation 60+ can become visible. The work is dance-based and language-based.

Each lab includes an impulse lecture on the thematic focus of the lab, its own final presentation and the opportunity to see dance performances together at the ehrenfeldstudios.
