LIGNA - KLASSE KINDER © Ralf Grömminger
1. + 2.7.
Fancy play air piano and be a part of a dancing gang amongst unsuspecting passers-by and tourists? The dance performance "Klasse Kinder!" invites children between eight and twelve years to participate in an exceptional piece - in a public space or in the school building, equipped with headphones, over which a radio play is running in which stories and motion instructions mix. Thus, they conquer school and inner-city spaces and try out how to move together in a randomly assembled group without a leader.
The idea for the piece comes from the choreographer Jenny Gertz (1891-1966), an almost forgotten pioneer of modern dance and a visionary in working with children.
No previous knowledge is required to take part in “Klasse Kinder!”.
