6. Biennale Tanzausbildung 2018
26.02.2018 in Berlin

Mehr als 100 Studierende aus acht deutschen und fünf internationalen Ausbildungsinstitutionen im Bereich Tanz präsentieren Choreografien, deren Vokabular vom klassischen Spitzentanz bis zum zeitgenössischen Tanz reicht. Die beiden Abende markieren den Beginn der 6. Biennale Tanzausbildung. Unter dem Titel “Dancing in the Street. Was bewegt Tanz?” rückt die Biennale 2018 die wechselseitige Beziehung zwischen Tanz und gesellschaftlichen sowie politischen Themen in den Mittelpunkt. Sie ist eine Arbeitsplattform, die dem Austausch und der Vernetzung von Studierenden und Lehrenden mit Künstler*innen und Institutionen dient. Bei den öffentlichen Aufführungen tanzen Studierende des dritten und vierten Studienjahres Choreografien, die das Thema der Biennale künstlerisch aufgreifen. Neben den deutschen Ausbildungsinstitutionen sind zudem Gäste aus Ausbildungszentren in Ägypten, Belgien, Iran, Senegal und den USA eingeladen.

More than 100 students from eight German and five international educational institutions in the area of dance present choreographies with a vocabulary ranging from classical ballet to contemporary dance. The two evenings mark the start of the 6th Dance Education Biennale. Under the title “Dancing in the Street. Was bewegt Tanz?” the Biennale 2018 focuses on the reciprocal relationship between dance and social and political themes. It is a working platform meant to serve the exchange and networking of students and teachers with artists and institutions. At the public performances students in the third and fourth year of their education will dance pieces that take up artistically the theme of the Biennale. Alongside the German educational institutions, guests have been invited from educational centres in Egypt, Belgium, Iran, Senegal, and the USA.

Half broke horses - The American Drama Group Europe

Director’s notes/ Description

After a fascinating memoir about her vagabond parents (The Glass Castle, 2005), Walls turns her sights on her grandmother Lily Casey Smith, who died when Walls was eight. Because she uses a first-person narrative voice to capture Lily’s scrappy voice and imaginatively fills in some of the missing details of Lily’s life, Walls calls the work “A True-Life Novel,”. TNT and the American Drama Group Europe turn this work into a “True life play”. Lily’s father is an eccentric who once spent three years in prison for murder, idolizes Billy the Kid and believes child’s play is a waste of time. Lily’s childhood on ranches in west Texas and New Mexico is an idyll filled with chores like breaking horses. She wins academic honors at the Catholic boarding school she attends until her father spends her tuition money to buy some dogs. A scrapper, Lily overcomes every setback. When the Depression hits , she moves to Chicago, where she marries a salesman who turns out to be a thieving bigamist, “a crumb bum” as Lily calls him. At 27, she starts college in Arizona where she meets and marries Jim Smith, whose no-nonsense smarts match Lily’s. When money gets scarce, Lily, supplements the family income by selling bootleg liquor. Jim lands a job managing a 100,000-acre cattle ranch and builds a dam that allows the ranch to survive a terrible drought. Lily’s relationship with her equally headstrong but less practical daughter Rosemary—who grows up to be Wall’s mother—becomes increasingly prickly but nothing can stop this woman and she carves her path through the “American Century”.
