Dreharbeiten | 16. - 19.11.2023


The anniversary production will celebrate its premiere on 18 November, exactly 20 years after the first young artists premiere. It will be a joint dance evening with all the groups that Augusto Jaramillo Pineda and steptext have built up under the young artists label in recent years (children, teenagers, young adults). This time, too, the theme will be one that is important to the young dancers: the rights of the earth. Under the title “Cicatrices – Scars of the Earth”, the central theme will be developed further and the complex interaction between humans and nature will take centre stage. Marion Amschwand, who choreographed the young artists’ very first production “Missing” in 2003, will rehearse with the young people, while dancer, choreographer and former young artist Viktor Braun will rehearse with the young adults. Of course, Augusto Jaramillo-Pineda, choreographer and director of the young artists, who leads the children’s group, will also be there. Together with the senior citizens Amis de La Danse, an evening of generations will be created that will unleash the full power of dance theatre.

To mark the anniversary, there will also be a broad workshop programme for all age groups (17, 18 and 19 November) and a school performance on 17 November at 11 a.m., which can also be combined with a workshop if interested.

The production is supported by the start Jugend Kunst Stiftung Bremen
