03.November  12:00 - 16:30

    A Conference on Skills, Professionalism(s) and Power

    The study Move2gether!, commissioned by LOFFT – DAS THEATER and our associate artists from Forward Dance Company, will be presented by the authors Ulrike Nestler and Fabian Chyle. The aim of the study is to clarify the necessary conditions for mixed-abled dance to be practiced under professional conditions. For this purpose, the authors conducted a field study in a Germany-wide survey. Taking into account the special knowledge and needs that make up mixed abled dance, dance critics, curators and other experts discuss questions of quality measurement criteria, processuality and power. Special attention will be given to the impact on the performance process of accessibility / low-threshold barriers.

    With, among others: Stefan, Brinkmann, Fabian Chyle, Gerda König, Isabella Spirig, Michael Turinsky, Arnd Wesemann.

    On 2. and 3. November, we would like to invite you to a guest performance by the Forward Dance Company at the LOFFT – DAS THEATER. See page 10.
