PRAKTisch is a platform that allows professional dancers and choreographers to come together regularly and share their practise. The format is a bi-monthly meeting that can be used by artists from Frankfurt and the region to work physically with other participants independent from consistent artistic concepts, cultural institutions and working colleagues. It is intended as a space for physical exchange with proposals from the participants: PRAKTisch sharing exercises, drafts, proposals, working methods.
A round, that gives us the opportunity to use the other bodies present to research together. PRAKTisch for the freelance scene in Frankfurt!
PRAKTisch takes place:
06th and 27th of September
04th and 20th of October
08th and 29th of November
06th of December
From 18h30 to 20h30 in Z-Zentrum für Proben und Forschung:
