“West-Land-Tänze” Open Air

THE THEATER DER KLÄNGE was a partner in the EU project “Dance highways” from 2021 to 2023, in which five European producers from Germany, France, Italy, Poland and Spain developed proposals for attracting audiences in culturally disadvantaged communities. One partner organisation was LA FUNDICION in Bilbao, Spain. In addition to its continuous in-house programme, La Fundicion organises an annual street theatre festival entitled “Lekus Leku” with venues in front of the Guggenheim Museum and along the banks of the river Nerbioi Ibaia in Bilbao.

Our choreographer Jacqueline Fischer will be travelling to Bilbao next week with the two dancers Lara Pilloni and Julia Monschau from our West-Land-Tänze ensemble to give a workshop in La Fundicion on 27 and 28 June on “Folk dance as material for contemporary dance creations”. On the two evenings of 28 and 29 June, performances of the workshop results as well as two pas de deux sequences from our piece “West-Land-Tänze” will be performed open air in the square (Entorno Museo Guggenheim) in front of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
