The inner political situation in Germany in the last weeks inspired Elisabeth to rechoreograph the traditional Bavarian Bandl Tanz together with Syrian and German teenagers. Instead of using the Bavarian colors, it was decided to interweave both the colors of the Syrian and the German flag as a sign of peaceful togetherness and openness to each other’s cultures. Thank you to Fachstelle Plus and Jedem Kind seine Kunst for the support.
In the coming week, Elisbaeth will participate in the event ‘Creative Side by Side – an intercultural project’, within which she will offer dance workshops to kids and teenagers of all ages. This workshop week is organised and funded by Fachstelle Plus and Jedem Kind seine Kunst.
