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.
Nicole Adriana discovered her passion for dance through urban dance styles like waacking and krump. She studied music and cultural studies at the Humboldt University in Berlin and travelled across Europe to learn from international choreographers. Whether in battles, music videos or on stage, she takes on the role of creative director in her productions and artistic projects in the dance and music scene.
Iman Gele trained in hip hop and krump. She has taken part in multiple international hip hop battles and works as a project-based dancer for Theatre Parkaue in Berlin. She has travelled across Europe and to New York to gain input from hip hop communities. She organises dance events, is a member of the female collective Walashé and works with the Berlin krump community, which she is a part of since 2020.
