Welcome to the Jungle is a participatory project developed by the dancer and choreographer Elisabeth Schilling in collaboration with the sound designer Jan Paul Werge and the costume designer Lynn Scheidweiler.

This project invites anyone interested and aged 14 and over to explore the power of nature through movement and participate in the creation of a choreography. During several meetings, amateur dancers of all levels will discover the jungle, its sounds, smells and textures, in the context of a collaborative artistic creation. The project consists of several dance workshops, rehearsals, and the two days of final performances.

The workshops are held in French, German, Luxembourgish and English.
