KCA - DANCEHOUSE PUBLIC PROGRAM

Choreography today invites a rethinking and reframing of relations between space, time, language, presence, aesthetics or authorship. The Keir Choreographic Award Dancehouse Public Program aims to contextualise the moving body within the framework of contemporary culture, its multiplicity of forms and meanings, in connection with interrelated art forms and its deep and subtle connections with the social, the ethical and the political.

This Public Program prolongs and expands on the Keir Chorographic Award Semi-Finals Season. Read more and book for the semi-finals HERE

LECTURE/PERFORMANCE

WALK & TALK NO.19 with PHILIPP GEHMACHER
