About
Dance for Sale plays at the interstices between public and private spaces, between the logics of the state and that of the market. Where is dance located? Who decides what is to be shown? What stages does a piece have to go through before it gets to the public?

Dance for Sale researches dance as a product. The “business with art” is the focus of its choreography. Grupo Oito, a collective of independent artists that was founded by Ricardo de Paula in 2006, invites the audience to a dance market and leaves them in a space negotiating the price of art. The principle is simple: those who pay first, watch the performance. The rest stay outside and get another chance. Dance for Sale is a dance market! Like all good markets, it is always searching for new products. With the main goal to keep the products updated, Grupo Oito offers a platform where dancers from different backgrounds and cultures interact and exchange experiences and movement.

Grupo Oito’s dancers Laura Alonso, Caroline Alves, Zé de Paiva, Ricardo de Paula, Natalie Riedelsheimer, and Miro Wallner will give a workshop and develop the show together with several Kenyan dancers.

An event in cooperation with Kultursprünge at Ballhaus Naunynstraße gemeinnützige GmbH.
