Three inclusive dance companies from Switzerland, Spain and Germany have created three dance pieces about remembering. The dancers have translated their own experiences and shreds of memory into movements: They become part of one’s own body, condense into moving images and evoke their own associations.

Three short pieces are the result:
Trio (oder die Unmöglichkeit, sich zu erinnern) (Trio (or the impossibility of remembering)) – Cie BewegGrund
Schnee von gestern (Yesterday’s Snow) – Danza Mobile
Erinnerungen schwirren (Buzzing Memories) – tanzbar_bremen

BewegGrund | Bern / Switzerland
The BewegGrund association has been promoting inclusive dance for 20 years: combining dancers with and without disabilities. Cie BewegGrund creates professional stage pieces and amateur productions. Through its ongoing work, BewegGrund has achieved national and international recognition and has unique experience and expertise gained in both artistic and educational fields. In their inclusive stage work, the dancers with disabilities offer new role models and question the myth of the perfect body, which still dominates dance and the performing arts to this day.

Danza Mobile | Seville / Spain
Since 2001, Compañía Danza Mobile has been part of the Danza Mobile Centre, which has been actively supporting the personal development and participation of people with disabilities in the arts, society and working life since 1995. Danza Mobile cooperates with artists, institutions and professionals of various kinds in national and international performing arts and trains people with disabilities as interpreters.

tanzbar_bremen | Bremen / Germany
At the tanzbar_bremen association, the focus is on strengthening contemporary dance through an inclusive principle. Those involved in the project create dance productions for stage and public spaces, hold regular training, workshop and mediation events and have been busy organising the biennial international festival of inclusive dance art eigenART since 2009. At tanzbar_bremen, artists with various skills work together, develop unique dance languages and interdisciplinary art formats, thereby opening up new aesthetic qualities and innovative approaches to dance. Through projects such as KompeTanz (2015-2018) and connect (2018- 2021), tanzbar_bremen creates jobs in the cultural sector for people with and without disabilities.
