July 2011, in collaboration with the Ponderosa Tanzland Festival, 100 DANCERS will create site specific experiments and choreographies in the beautiful and historic countryside region of old East Germany. Near the boarder to Polen flows the river and channels through sleepy villages that seems untouched by time, only an hour’s journey from Berlin.
At the Ponderosa Festival an ecstatic flow of dancers, choreographers, artists and musicians from around the world collaborate throughout the summer.
Our task for the 100 DANCERS lab is to explore choreographic ideas and group scores, how to interact with and transform a given environment. We take our work from the studio and into the old church, the medieval tower or across the fields. Lab participants, bring ideas that you like to try out. We end the Ponderosa lab with a performance score involving all the festival’s dancers and artists.
Public event the 16th July 5 pm in and around the village church in Stolzenhagen
