Contemporary Dance: Dance for Sale, Jun. 26 & 27 2015 @ Tom Mboya Square

Dance for Sale

Venue: Tom Mboya Square
Time: 3 pm
Admission: A matter of negotiation

Dance for Sale – interview from Grupo Oito on Vimeo.

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.

Kizomba Dance Workshop: The Art of Connection Part 3, May 16 2015 @ Italian Institute of Culture – Westlands

Dance
Kizomba is an African rhythmic dance, developed in Angola in 1983. Being born in a continent with a effervescent musical history, Kizomba is a result of an evolution.
Kizomba is all about “connecting people”… and in this third series we have added more spice to all things content (footwork, Technique, body movement, turn variations and partner work combinations) for each of the three levels we will focus on.

Beginners Level 1 Session ~ 2:00 – 3.00 pm
Beginners Level 2 Session ~ 3:05 – 4.05 pm
Intermediate Level 1 Session ~ 4:10 – 5.10 pm
