Swiss choreographer and performer Gregory Stauffer will present Walking, a solo dance performance in Dhaka on April 2, 2016. This contemporary dance performance will be held at the Goethe Institut Auditorium, Dhanmondi at 7pm.
This performance is jointly brought to Dhaka by the Embassy of Switzerland in Bangladesh and Goethe Institute Bangladesh, in collaboration with the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
Walking is a site-specific act and Stauffer’s tribute to the ground that supports changing verticalities, dreams, and ambitions, as it traces life’s journey. The performance suggests that an individual’s environment, mind, and body are connected to each other to form a musical chord.
Based in Geneva, Switzerland, Gregory Stauffer possesses a playful serious mind. In the last decade, he has created works which are deliberately located in a transverse and blurred territory between dance and performance. His work has been performed as much in theaters and festivals as in galleries. During his stay in Dhaka, Stauffer will also conduct a workshop which will be attended by young dancers from Bangladesh.
According to Goethe Institute Bangladesh, complimentary entry passes can be collected from it’s Dhanmondi premises, and admission to the event is on first-come first-serve basis as seating arrangement is limited.
