Dance as you are! CHICKS* invite small groups and even individual participants to delve into their personal experiences with dance together with the artists. DEEP DANCING is an interactive dance format exploring forms of partner dance and the discourse on dancing in times of patriarchy. Participants and artists join up to construct queer-feminist utopias and practice dance as both a resistive tool and a feel-good place, but also a form of performative trauma therapy at the same time. Shall we dance? And, if yes, how?

CHICKS* freies performancekollektiv – DEEP DANCING

In individual encounters and small groups, performers and participants negotiate questions about partner dance and leading while searching for non-violent ways of being with each other. How do we dance when there is no cismale* part to take the lead? What gender roles may we establish, discard, or debate in dance? How are we going to interact to avoid hurting each other? DEEP DANCING is a feminist flirting school, a consent-based meeting format, and a distancing-disco-fox class, an exercise in pushing and stumbling, a monogamy-critical partnering ritual and a power-negotiating conversational format in dance. All in all, DEEP DANCING is both a highly exclusive and sensitive date with CHICKS* and a close dance with yourself!

CHICKS* freies performancekollektiv is an independent performance collective uniting various experts and interdisciplinary artists in a queer-feminist network. In thorough research processes, CHICKS* look for what unites their different every-day realities, what drives them, and what they want to get rid of or change. Being queer-feminist, CHICKS* challenge existing social concepts of gender, sexuality, and power. In their performances, they combine interactive and installation-based meeting formats with a visual theatre of objects and atmospheres. CHICKS* devise theatre productions and interactive performance formats. They also organise workshops, seminars, and trainings in the fields of queer-feminist and sexual education using means of performative theatre for young adults and grown-ups, professionals, and amateurs.
