When dancers from the Global South move inside European institutions, they are not neutral bodies performing on neutral stages. Many of them are exiled, dislocated, split, uprooted. Many of them are resisting, denouncing, processing, joining the dots, healing the many wounds they carry and the many injustices they receive and witness. If they don’t give in to the same dynamics that create these conditions, then with their work they can create spaces for solidarity, refuge and transformation.
The collective Dancing at the Crossroads (As We Walk) wants to honour this work and those doing it. They are hosting a non-argumentative, restorative and integrative moment for their guests and themselves, to speak and listen to each other, and to practise remembrance.
Audiences are welcome, with the disclaimer that this frame prioritises artists and cultural practitioners of the diasporas.
