“Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream” William Shakespeare – A Midsummer Night’s Dream
I had the great pleasure to lead on this amazing performance project as dance director and choreographer. Together with the wonderful dance artists Daniela Mühlbauer and Luise Lochmann we have worked over three intensive rehearsal weeks with 46 school children in Year 1, Year 7 and Year 8 to create a piece inspired by William Shakespears “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The choreography premiered as part of the Richard-Strauss-Festival 2019 at the Festsaal Werdenfels in Garmisch-Partenkirchen on Thursday 27th June. The project was a collaboration between Richard-Strauss-Festival 2019, Bürgermeister-Schütte-Grund- und Mittelschule Garmisch-Partenkirchen and FokusTanz e.V. Munich.
