Biography:

We are Donya Ahmadifar, Jens Kuhlmann, Dimitrios Koutsogiotas, Lydia Tesfai, Virginia Breitenbaumer and Chiara Fiori. We are a collective of different urban dancers persuing the goal of bringing urban dance to the theatre stage in a new context. Each member embodies a very unique dance style and enriches the collective, not only dance-wise but also culturally. We represent a number of dance styles including hip hop, house, breaking, popping and afro.

Project description:

Our piece is about breathing – but what does breathing do to our body? Breathing is a natural task of the body and functions passively for the most part. But what happens when breathing stops? How quickly do we switch into survival mode? What happens to us when we actively breathe? The idea is to create a piece and simultaneously promote the connection between street art and stage art.
