Session #1: Filming Dance — 11th February 2022

Is the live experience with dance irreplaceable? Is dance on screen its own artform? Can we dance digitally? How are dance artists reaching audiences during lockdowns?
Restrictions of lockdown are challenging and require new solutions. What did the almost two years of pandemic teach us about filming dance?
Munich-based; Ceren Oran (Choreographer), Jasmine Ellis (Film Director/ Choreographer), Harun Isik (Film Director) and Benedict Mirow (Film Director) share their ideas, inspiration, and experiences in working with dance on screen.
Premiering works produced during the pandemic times; the short film series of the performance „Schön Anders“ by Ceren Oran in collaboration with Harun Isik and 3 shorts by Jasmine Ellis. Discussions will be moderated by Anna Donderer.
The event is part of a three-day artistic gathering organized by Ceren Oran in Munich, supported by the TANZPAKT RECONNECT program.

Session #2: Composing for Theatre and Dance — 2nd May 2022

Often, we take for granted that dance is accompanied by music. But what role does music play in contemporary dance and theatre? What is it like to compose sounds and tunes for something that doesn’t exist yet? Does music make dance and theatre more accessible for the audience?
Which tools and languages do choreographers, directors and musicians use in order to collaborate in a process and create a unique experience for audiences?
After dealing with the topic of “Filming Dance” in Session 1, Ceren Oran & Moving Borders invite you to a second Session in Munich, where Hüseyin Evirgen (musician and composer), Benno Heisel (musician and theatremaker), Nihan Devecioglu (singer and performer), Beni Brachtel (composer, music producer, and DJ) and Ceren Oran (choreographer, dancer and soundpainter) share their experiences about the vivid connection between music, dance and theatre in dialogue with the audience.
The panel will be moderated by Tuncay Acar.

Session #3: Intergenerational Dance — 28th October 2022

What stories can be told through bodies that we usually don’t see on stage? What expectations do we have from young & old as audience, creators, performers? How can we enrich each other through our mixed age groups? How different backgrounds of these human profiles can inspire a collective creative process?

After two inspiring sessions on Filming Dance and Composing for Dance and Theatre, Ceren Oran & Moving Borders invite you to the third and the last Session of 2022 in Munich, where Galit Liss, choreographer (, Sanja Tropp Frühwald, choreographer and dancer (, Jasa Frühwald, performer & Paula Niehoff, dancer and choreographer, share their experiences about creating and working with intergenerational performer profiles as of age 7 to 99; in dialogue with the audience.
