Production Details / Press Releases
This year’s international focus will turn to India: Tanztage Berlin welcomes the interdisciplinary art festival Gender Bender from Bangalore as their guest and presents a performance that was shown at the southern Indian festival in 2018: An Evening of Lavani.
Music, dance, songs and stories – the traditional dance form Lavani is mostly performed by women and has often been considered adult entertainment for men. This evening brings a contemporary context to the dance and promises to turn the male gaze upside down.
KALI BILLI PRODUCTIONS is an interdisciplinary group of artists who believe in initiating a dialogue through sharing stories that provoke and challenge themselves and the audience. They are actively involved in theatre, documentary film making and research and archiving.
