People and Us!

The essence of our artistic work is,

to bring life and not perfection to the stage.

Dance as an artistic form is a privilege of all people. e.V. was founded in 2018 under the direction of Katja Gluding and Belinda Winkelmann in Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany) with the aim to bring contemporary mixedable dance pieces to the stages and to establish a normality of differences on the stages with a regularity of these pieces.
