#LUFT – a youth danceproject about the climate

What is this air, that every living being on this planet shares with each other? How does it connect us? Could we do something to improve the atmosphere – between each other and globally?

#LUFT explores the embodied counciousness of our environment with a youth group of age 9 -18 from Herne, Germany and tackles the question how to face the current global crisis of climate, Together with Nella Turkki and Janis Heldmann the group created a performance with an interdiscplinary approach of dance and theatre. During the process, the participants get to know new forms of expression and movement and dedicate to a topic that we all have in common – our atmosphere. The project began in June 2019 and premiered on the Pottporus Festival in Novembre 2019 in Herne, Germany.

The 40 minutes performance was well received by the audience and is available to be performed in festivals in Germany and Europe.

A full length video of the performance can be requested.
