The kids group of the children’s dance company of Sasha Waltz & Guests under the direction of Gabriel Galindez Cruz is in the selection program of the 6th Tanztreffen der Jugend in Berlin! On September 22nd »Check out your mate« can be seen at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele during the festival! The advance booking starts on August 15th at 2 p.m. – get your tickets now!
In “Check out your mate” contrasts collide: black meets white and seems incompatible. The spectators observe an exciting game between two groups whose members duel in dance. Developed from the idea of the real chess game, new, spontaneous, previously undetermined pairings emerge on the stage in every performance. The dancers bring jumpers, runners and towers to life, the teams outdo each other with their movements. Which team shows the coolest moves? Who will win?
The kids group of the children’s dance company of Sasha Waltz & Guests developed »Check out your mate« last year 2018, the 10-14-year-old dancers presented the piece for the first time in November 2018 at the showing of the children’s dance company in the radialsystem.
All the young dancers in the group are delighted with the invitation to the »6th Youth Dance Meeting« at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele. They are following in the footsteps of the then »Kids«, today’s »Teens« group, which took part in the festival for the first time in 2015 with the piece »Feuerblume«.
The children’s dance company of Sasha Waltz & Guests is a project of Sasha Waltz & Guests / Education & Community in cooperation with the radialsystem.
