This Week on Artist & International Dance (6/12)12 Jun 2020, Posted by Uncategorized in
This Sunday the weekly program, Dance Diplomacy with Jonathan, continues:
On the next three Sundays, June 14, 21 and 28, Hollander’s Dance Diplomacy interviews bring together non-profit and education leaders, diplomats and Syrian refugee dancers, to examine the ways in which the pandemic has impacted Germany and to examine the short and long-term ramifications of the virus in the realms of culture, education and society itself.
First up will be three women from the cities of Berlin, Stuttgart and Kassel: Inka Thunecke, Christiane Pyka and Charlene Hackley, at 9 am and 12 noon EDT on June 14th. Each has played a key role in supporting diverse programs in her City including Dancing to Connect for Refugee Integration, the workshop and performance initiative conducted by Battery Dance. Among other issues, they will discuss the opportunities that online programming may play in the event that a second wave of the coronavirus returns in the Fall. What lessons can we teach each other via the transatlantic relationship?
Hollander said, ‘I and many others have been guided and inspired by Inka, Christiane and Charlene, who lead with clear vision and empathy for those whom society has left behind. Each is an optimist and takes on big challenges regardless of the personal toll it takes on their lives. I know that the Battery Dance TV audience will gain from knowing about them and the institutions they represent.’
In the afternoon, Syrian dancer Amr Karkout will teach a dance class on Battery Dance TV at 2pm, followed by his solo performance at 4pm.
