URBAN FEMINISM Gotcha!
As part of the ongoing project URBAN FEMINISM, ten young Berlin-based urban dance artists will present their short choreographic creations. Following a series of intensive workshop weekends with inspiring mentors Anne Nguyen, Raphael Moussa Hillebrand, Honji Wang and Kat Válastur, the female choreographers express their dis tinct styles and unique voices in eight solos and a duet.
Tatjana Mahlke is a dance graduate whose interests span multiple urban dance styles. In 2019, she performed as a finalist in the competition “Das beste deutsche Tanzsolo” in Leipzig and in 2020, together with the collective Zookunft.Project, she initiated an international exchange that seeks to confront urban dance with other disciplines, such as the fine arts, sound and light design, illustration and biology. She is a member of the Swiss dance group Merge Dance Collective.
