dance, music, body wisdom from egypt


4 August - 9 August  

August Dance is a dance event hosted by company tanz raum, featuring dance, rhythm, yoga, and meditation from Egypt.

This event offers a unique opportunity to collaborate with artists from the company, including Caroline Chevat and Claudia Heinle and guests.

This year, we will embark on a journey to explore the subject of water  through the creation of a performance to be showcased at Le Ginkgo, in Belley, France.

Throughout this experience, we will explore the life-giving element water and learn how to overcome obstacles in order to reach a state of flow.

The dancers and musicians of the company will provide support and guidance during this week-long endeavor. Together, we will work towards our final goal, culminating in a performance on the last day.

Whether you're a professional or a beginner, august dance welcomes all who are passionate about dance and creativity. Join us for a week of exploration, collaboration, and inspiration.
