Xiao Ke × Zi Han (CN)


Registration at

Max. 9 participants

Online workshop on “Plaza Dancing” from China (no age restriction, limited places).

Xiao Ke × Zi Han’s research into what Chinese contemporary dance is led them to the massive phenomenon of public square dancing in China. This type of dance mixes various Chinese dance styles, from folklore and traditional practices to modern national canons, aerobics, pop music and selfie culture, reviving Chinese body memory through seventy years of history and education.
Public square dancing celebrates the very human joy of sharing positive moments with a community, especially for the weaker members of society who are often alienated in the fast-growing urban environment, far from their roots.
