‘Nobody cares if you dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.’
Inspired by our last Korzo Production in June, we were left with the desire to bring more people to the stage. As Tribes we believe firmly that dance is for everybody and that everybody can dance, that even when you don’t know how to dance, you can still dance beautifully and from the heart. That is why we set ourselves the challenge to choreograph from that, inspired to dive into the world of authentic expression. Setting ourselves the challenge of letting go of the idea that the stage is only for those who embody the right techniques, instead we allow ourselves to be inspired by one of the greatest teachers of all time
‘I feel that the essence of dance is the expression of men – the landscape of his soul’ – Martha Graham.
We have all experienced those moments when we were moved soul to soul, feeling the authentic presence of somebody in their movement in their dance. How endlessly mesmerizing and beautiful that is.
We wanted to explore this concept with dancers and choreographers from various backgrounds and together create the performance DANCE! We want to bring people together not focussing on level or experience, but on willingness to join, explore and create.
