Just as you wish you could invite someone from across the dance floor to a dance and figure out, in that compressed time of one song, what lingers between you and how for a moment you meet in celebration of life, you can wish to meet someone on stage and let the resulting content flow freely.
International improvisers will invite each other and members of the audience to short sparkling impro encounters. Everyone present on the evening’s playground can embark upon researching a contact. They can sincerely decline the performer’s invitation to a “dance” or accept it and venture into wonderful landscapes of the unknown.
The Invitation to Dance is an event especially designed for this year’s Naked Stage that centres on the theme of connection. It toys with the roles of the performer and the observer, and forefronts relations that weave between everyone involved. In this case the short but sweet, clumsy or focused close encounters between performers and audiences take place on stage.
The event replaces the originally scheduled performance Here You See by Berlin-based artist Christoph Jungmann who unfortunately had to cancel his participation at the Naked Stage festival due to health issues.
Tickets: 5 EUR (per performance), 8 EUR (for both performances of the evening)
