Karaoke Dance Workshopa are a new form of well-known game, where instead of singing someone else's songs, participants are dancing someone 's choreography, or playing someone else's dance scene. It is an attempt to challenge the division between stage and audience, playing with mirror neurons and truly embodying the reception of dance theatre in spontaneous group action.
On each day of the workshop we will create new versions of the greatest performances in the history of dance theater. Ballet, contemporary dance, physical theater, Tanztheater, etc. Anything can become material for our experiment, fun and work.
