TANZAKADEMIE

TANZAKADEMIE is an education project initiated by Kaserne Basel. Students of different ages from three Basel school classes, boasting different cultural, social and religious backgrounds, come together to perform in unique locations around the city in the frame of the yearly dance festival TANZFEST BASEL. Over a period of six months, the weekly sport lessons at the schools were replaced by dance lessons. This gave the children and teenagers the opportunity to approach different forms of dance and reflect upon social relevant topics such as home in HOME in 2017, consumption in JÄGER & SAMMLER in 2018 and identity in WHO WE ARE in 2019. During this period, full of tryouts, sweating, developing fantasies, romping around and training, training, training, they have grown into a committed dance company and are given full spotlights to show who they are, what they dream of, how they move and what moves them.
