...by dancers around the globe as an act of solidarity and compassion in the face of isolation.

It is an embodied representation of emotional and physical absences. In this live dance event, we celebrate international solidarity, even in the face of travel restrictions. A powerful reminder that although our borders may be closed, our artistic whānau remains here, waiting with arms open.

Q & A:
In an effort to extend our passion for connection to the community as a whole we will be hosting a live Q&A immediately after the July 17th performance to answer questions from the audience about the experiences and challenges of working together via an online medium.

Concept: Katrina E. Bastian
Musician + Producer: Flinn Gendall
Choreography + Performance: Katrina E. Bastian, Zoe Galle, Jadi Carboni, Alice Botelho, Shannon Leypoldt, Tiana Lung

The Hollo(w)ing will be live-streamed directly to this Facebook Event Page on the 8th and 17th of July at 8pm.

DANCERS* and ACTORS* needed of different types and ages for the musical short film: ERHÖRE UNS, SÜSSE FREIHEIT! 

Style mix: classic/art/humour; music by G.F.Händel, choir arrangement/text: Helen Ispirian; Previous knowledge of dance is advantageous, but non-professionals with dance experience are also welcome to contact us.

The production is an initiative of UdK students as well as an association of other students and professional freelance artists.  

The project aims to draw attention to the situation of freelance artists in a humorous way. Since we only have a minimal budget for projects by students of the UdK for our expenses, we are unfortunately unable to pay a fee. Nevertheless, the importance of the message has brought together a wonderful team! 

The dancers form an ensemble in a church setting. Initially a grey mass image representing the death of culture and later, its coming to life through individual and collective artistic effort.

Dear independent artists and culture makers in Berlin,

all of us are affected by the coronavirus lockdown in Berlin, as is everyone in Germany and beyond. While the first easings of the restrictions have come, the song remains the same: theaters and concert venues are closed, planned tours have been cancelled, project spaces cannot host projects and there are no festivals, readings or concerts. For many of us this means that we are unable to earn much or even any money. Some of us are facing bankruptcy.

In light of this, an interdisciplinary initiative has come into being that is planning the Niemandkommt festival on July 24, 2020, inspired by the Keinerkommt festival in Hamburg (www.keinerkommt.de). On this day, Berlin-based artists working in all disciplines will put on the (fictitious) festival of the summer by not showing up and not providing any online content, either. Tickets will be sold to support our independent arts community – and all of the money made will go to those independent artists in Berlin who are the most in need.

Many prominent artists and collectives working in all disciplines such as She She Pop, Sasha Waltz, Sharon Dodua Otoo and Kathrin Röggla have already joined us or have been invited. We would be delighted if you would be a part of this and demonstrate it by not coming, but instead by showing solidarity – after all, Berlin’s independent arts community is one-of-a-kind and is shaped by every single one of us and the festival needs to reflect that, too!

Will you join us? If yes, please send an email by May 29, 2020 to mailto:info@niemandkommt.dewith "YES" in the subject and your professional title and discipline (artist name, group name, et cetera). Then we'll be able to put your name on the website.

And if you are facing extreme financial hardship, we warmly invite you to send us an application for support. Detailed information will be available shortly and the festival website with all information will go live on June 1, 2020, at the latest.

We’re looking forward to you taking part and not showing up,
The Niemandkommt festival team

Ulrike Badke, Naomi Boyce, Daniel Brunet, Susanne Foellmer, Elisa Müller, Paul Netzer, Torsten Oelscher, Sarah Rosenau, Jenny Schrödl and Casey Tower

Ich studiere an der Filmakademie Berlin (DFFB) und bin auf der Suche nach 3-4 Tänzer*innen für ein Kurzfilm-Musical.

Der Film wird auf 16mm gedreht, soll 7 Minuten dauern und voraussichtlich im Juli gedreht werden (was sich angesichts der Lage noch verschieben kann).

Bist du Tänzer*in und hast Zeit und Lust während 2 Tagen mit einem kleinen Team in Berlin an der Realisierung eines Kurzfilms mitzuwirken?
Dann melde dich bei mir, ich freue mich!

The Program of this workshop is highly practical and designed to fully immerse students in learning movement, coaching and actor training. The pace of this one-week workshop is very demanding and students should be prepared to live, eat and breathe movement for the entire duration of the course.

The workshop is a full-time program, designed as a lab with practical sessions, lectures and discussion forums. The workshop offers a stimulating environment in which students are able to develop their movement directing skills, practice, and expertise in a short amount of time. Students may expect to encounter different movement and directing techniques varying from the principles of traditional theatres to modern approaches. Practical sessions are designed to enhance skills as both a movement teacher and movement director.

All students enrolling in the intensive One-Week Movement Directing Workshop should be aware that this is an introductory course. The limitations of a one-week course should be apparent, given that many people spend years studying and perfecting the craft.
