with "Local Dancing"
The Forum Tanzvermittlung is a mixed format consisting of a lecture, a practical example and discussion. Using queer lore and specially invented instant tradition, the guests "LOCAL DANCING" imagines popular group dances that may have traveled through time and now appear non-binary and unpaired. With no national ties, the dances pretend to be local wherever they are. They give us reason to come together and be held in the repetition and routine of a circular choreography.

The Forum Tanzvermittlung is a mixed format consisting of a lecture, a practical example and discussion. The forum offers experts from the region the opportunity to exchange ideas about questions in the field of "mediation and participation" and thus gain reflexive distance to their own work.
This time we approach the topic of circle dances and at the end open the discussion for critical thinking in the field of dance in the context of dance project with a non-professional audience.
LOCAL DANCING: Using queer lore and specially invented instant tradition, we imagine popular group dances that may have traveled through time and now appear non-binary and unpaired. Without national ties, the dances pretend to be local wherever they are. They give us reason to come together and be held in the repetition and routine of a circular choreography.

René Alejandro Huari Mateus The institutional intersections of the forms of discrimination in which choreography, dance, and performance are developed and shown in Germany, and which are hidden behind pretty inclusion programs without changing anything substantial, have shaped René's identity and approach to artistic creation. She pursues and appreciates strategies that aim NOT to reproduce violent structures, not even to denounce violence. Clara Reiner Clara Reiner performs, choreographs, builds objects for the stage and lives in Offenbach. She studied choreography and performance at the Institute for Applied Theater Studies in Giessen, Germany, and sculpture at the Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten (KASK) in Ghent, Belgium.
