Nir de Volff / TOTAL BRUTAL
"Come as you are #Berlin“
The fruit of an astonishing collaboration in Berlin between an Israeli choreographer and three Syrian refugee dancers, this piece explores what happens when dancers who had trained back in Syria in ballet, musicals and folklore arrive in the contemporary dance world of Berlin, with its radical exploration of freedom, the body, sexuality, and identity.
followed by KLEZMER/SCOTTISH CEILIDH with CELTER SCHMELTER and callers Fiona Frank and Conrad Molleson
Led by fiddle player Gica Loening, Celter Schmelter is unique in playing for Scottish AND Klezmer dancing. Klezmer is the wedding and celebration music of Eastern European Jewish communities from the last century and beyond, brought bang up to date by our musicians today.
Conrad and Fiona will guide you round the dances so you don't need to know what you're doing.
ALSO IN EDINBURGH ON THURSDAY 27 JUNE 7 P.M. see www.trybooking.co.uk/6890
