With our partners from Berlin, the wonderful team of “Tanztangente”, we are working on a dance project in the juvenile prison of Berlin this month. Three days a week, six hours a day.
Sitting next to an inmate he points at the space where we are rehearsing, “This is heaven” he says and than he points in the direction where the cells are, “That is hell”.
We are working towards a performance early October, after ten intensive sessions of rehearsals. Also we hope to be able to give them a certificate, not for their danceskills but for their employabilityskills. For many of them it might be the first time that they are so committed to forfill a task. Impressive to see the focus, concentration and collaboration of these young offenders and so nice to work with inspired people like Nadja and Dani from the Tanztangente Company.
