Our eXchange dance festival is specifically designed for professionally oriented dancers of all disciplines who wish to work intensively with Butoh dance.

We may also allow some passionate amateur dancers to join, but we try strictly to distinguish from therapeutic Butoh styles.
Therefore we ask for a letter of application with a CV on dance, as well as we have only about 60 exclusive places for participation.

We cordially invite you to participate.

The whole festival is divided into interlocking pieces:

The Arrival  -  August  4

Please try to arrive in Pasewalk between 12 and 6 p.m. latest, as we will have dinner at 7 p.m. and afterwards a little welcome program for you:
- the choreographers will show (short) parts of their work in a small performance...

The Work Phase  -  August  5 - 10

Here you get the chance to be instructed by our invited 8 choreographers in various styles of dance.

From 5th untill 9th of Aug. participants will be split into groups and two instructional sessions (3 hrs.) will be held for each group every day. The workshop camp is arranged so that every participant will get the chance to complete one instruction unit with each of the eight choreographers.

Workshop Schedule
(this schedule is subject to change without notice)

WS3On 10th of August the choreographers present their concept for a choreography for the final performance. After that the participants choose one choreographer or a choreographer-couple with whom he/she would like further to work and rehearse with from 10th until 15th of August for the final presentation.

ATTENTION: If too many participants will choose a particular choreographer or a choreographer-couple, you will be asked to make a second choice. Otherwise the artistic directors will have to decide on the groups' structure. There is no guarantee for working with a specified choreographer.
