You are very welcome to participate at the creation and performance of the Global Water Dances – a bold visionary artistic initiative focused on the critical need for safe drinking water.

Where: Steyerberg (Lower Saxony), Germany

When: June 9 to 11 of 2023

This performance workshop is open to all, amateurs to professionals, who feel like expressing themselves in movement. We will connect with water in nature – feel it, move it, dance it.
During this weekend in June of 2023, people from all over the world will meet to dance on the theme of “water”. We will be a part of this global movement in the village of Steyerberg, Lower Saxony and in the Permaculture Park at Lebensgarten Steyerberg (PaLS).

With the tools from Rudolf Laban, Antja Kennedy will facilitate the choreographic process with the existing skills from the group. Individual movement sequences and structured improvisation phrases developed in subgroups will be combined into a choreography within a very short time. The dance will be for the most part created on-site and performed on this weekend, with some preliminary rehearsals online on two Saturdays beforehand.

Via Zoom – for the global part of the dance:
Saturday May 13, 2023 10 am – 1 pm and Saturday June 3, 2023 10 am – 1 pm

On site at Steyerberg / PaLS:
Friday, June 9 starting at 3 pm – Sunday, June 11, 2023 at approx. 5 pm

Performance (with video):

Site Location
Permaculture Park at Lebensgarten Steyerberg (PaLS)

The performance workshop is free of charge.
The participants will have to pay for their travel to Steyerberg, as well as for their own accomodation and board. At Lebensgarten Steyergarten there are a variety of options from tents or caravans to double rooms with shared bathrooms or single rooms with bathrooms.

A zoom meeting for all those who want to know more about Global Water Dances will be held on World Water Day, Wednesday March 22 at 3 pm (CET) with the screening of the film Ripples and Reflections: 10 Years of Global Water Dances.
