Workshop with Joshua Monten
The choreographer Joshua Monten will offer a two-hour-choreographic-workshop based on the material in “Romeo, Romeo, Romeo.” The workshop will begin with a 45-minute contemporary dance warm-up. After that, the choreographer will discuss the working methods used to create “Romeo, Romeo, Romeo,” which involve a mixture of dance and theater elements. Participants will be invited to creatively explore these methods, both with improvisation and by composing new dance sequences.
This program is support by Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, Pro Helvetia Cairo, Kultur Stadt Bern, SWISSLOS / Culture Canton de Berne.

Central to the ethos of our Festival is providing opportunities for members of the wider community to participate in dance. We believe using our bodies, voices or in-animating objects to express is an essential part of the human experience.

In 2012 Joshua founded his own dance company which has subsequently given hundreds performances at festivals and theaters around the world.
