Submerge - Dance Workshop & Performance Festival by Lake Studios Berlin

Festival date: August 3 - September 12, 2020 (rolling admission)

This summer Lake Studios hosts the 4th edition of an intensive festival dedicated to submerging into specific performance works of our invited dance artists. The workshops are conceived as embodied »re-creative« labs into the making of these pieces. The artists will share their creative processes, movement techniques, choreographic / improvisational methods, and conceptual journeys through the crafting of their works.

With support of the Berliner Kultur Senat we are happy to announce that we will be able to offer our annual Submerge Festival Workshops and Performances to the Berlin Dance Community on a free/donation/pay what you can basis. We would like to offer this opportunity to local professional dance artists who have also had losses of income due to the COVID 19 crisis. Workshops will have limited space available and require a short application.

Workshop participants also receive a free ticket to the performance – giving them a full experience from inside to out.
