Congratulations to the Kids of Sasha Waltz & Guests' Children's Dance Company: With their piece »Check out your mate«, directed by dancer and choreographer Gabriel Galindez Cruz, the group is represented in the final selection of this year's 6th Tanztreffen der Jugend in Berlin. The jury decided on 52 submitted productions, the total of six nominated pieces can be seen from September 20th to 29th 2019 at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele.

In »Check out your mate« opposites collide: black meets white and seems incompatible. The spectators observe an exciting match between two groups whose members are dueling themselves in dance. But the physical confrontation shows: By approaching each other, we get in contact to each other. Out of the rivalry, the result is a colorful, diverse and dynamic movement.

»Check out your mate« was developed in 2018, the 10 to 13-year-old dancers presented the piece for the first time at the showing in November 2018 at Berlin's Radialsystem.

The Children's Dance Company Berlin by Sasha Waltz & Guests is a project of Sasha Waltz & Guests / Education & Community in cooperation with Radialsystem Berlin.
