Finding the Most Open Question ONLINE – it’s been a fun 13 weeks

Dear Dance Fans,


STRETCH Festival for Men* – cancelled! Xplore Festival Berlin – cancelled! White supremacy – cancelled! I was a lot sadder to see some of those go than others. Let’s transform.

Here are a few offerings in coming months:

First of all, after 3 months online, my regular weekly class Finding the Most Open Question will be happening in physical spacetime again, starting this week (July 7), still on Tuesday evenings, now at 8:15pm, and please note it will now take place at the Kreuzberg branch of Tanzfabrik Berlin (studio 3). Space is limited and registration is only possible online so please check the Tanzfabrik website for instructions and COVID guidelines. Looking forward to see You there and play with the space between! (at least 1.5 meters)
The online class may still happen from time to time for all my favorite participants in Vienna, Portland, South Africa, and elsewhere. Thank You so much for dropping in!

Excited to be teaching a workshop in real life again! And in Berlin, no less. Desire – on Intimacy in Process & Performance – will happen as part of Marameo Berlin’s summer program on August 1 & 2, 3pm to 6pm both days. We will not go into physical contact, but rather explore how socially distant times inform the desire in space. Once again, spaces are limited so sign up now!

Also this summer: really looking forward to working as an outside eye with young Hamburg-based choreographer Marcelo Dono on his new piece Grind Me, premiering September 18 at the Lichthof Theater in Hamburg.

Music Lovers: I’m very excited to be featured piano-wise on my good friend Merlin Dietrich’s new EP Songs from a Warehouse. Check it out here. The big piano tune is “Ballad from Awarehouse”.

Looking forward to connecting with all of You again soon, and figuring all of this out together.

Lots of love,
David B.
