NOV 23 | Dancing to Connect: Kassel
Over the course of two weeks in October, creative workshops were held virtually with refugee and non-refugee German youth. From these workshops, a new dance work was created that tells their collective stories and aspirations for the future. This project is part of Battery Dance’s Dancing to Connect for Refugee Integration program.
Lacking | World Premiere
“Lacking” takes inspiration from the youthful participants’ feelings and raw experiences as they reflected on months of quarantine. In the workshop sessions, they explored the sensation of loss, of not feeling complete. Their journey from isolation to connectedness was accomplished through the process of collaborating with others. In that sense, “Lacking” illustrates the finding of peace within the storm, regaining strength and completeness through the building of community and sharing.
