vom 27. Juni bis 7. Juli 2012


After an impressive record – six festival editions since 2005, 200 artists from 30 countries and four continents, 78 performancesand 25 labs –tThe 7th edition of the festival DanceKiosk-Hamburg 2012 aims to keep on creating a platform for innovative performances, a meeting point for young dancers and choreographers and to offer a high quality training opportunities at K3 - Centre for Choreography. This year our local and international guests will present their latest outstanding productions – dance, film u. performance at Hamburg Sprechwerk and Gängeviertel e.V. Furthermore, this year's edition deals with the topic Cultural Bodies - geography and society, raising questions like - Is there a European body, a trans-continental, inter-cultural or the global/universal body? How to determine different cultural and physical bodies under such topics as: gender, diversity, religion, or geographic and social origins and identity? And how different cultural bodies react on a social, economic and political level in and outside their own society? These questions will be examined with the evening artists after all performances and films screening.

The festival co-operates with three other non-profit associations Gängeviertel and HamburgerKino for the evening Film & Performance Installations at the Gängeviertel including short dance films, performances and installations. And with the New Swinggeneration with a Lindy Hop crash-course to make us  ‘Keep on swinging’.

The trainingprogram starts in co-operation with K3 - Centre for Choreography and over two weeks, dancers, choreographers, actors, amateur and children can win additional insights from experienced choreographers about movement and choreographic research. Our open door days take place again where curious spectators can observe the workshop working processes.
