August Dance is an international dance event hosted by company tanz raum, featuring dance, rhythm, yoga, and meditation from Egypt as well as modern bodymind techniques.

This event offers a unique opportunity to collaborate with artists from the company, including Caroline Chevat and Claudia Heinle, as well as the Egyptian musicians Mourad Adli and Amir Ezzat.

Together, we will embark on a journey to explore the subject of transformation and death through the creation of a unique performance to be showcased at Phönix Theatre, a small but well-known contemporary dance theatre in Steckborn, Switzerland.

To make this possible, we have created an interactive installation with video projections inspired by the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead. We will use this installation as a space for training, exchange, experimentation, and as stage design.

Throughout this experience, we will explore the elements that support the creative process, and learn how to overcome obstacles in order to reach a state of flow. Our team of artists, dancers, and musicians 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.
