We are very much looking forward to a joint project with you!

A mixed group of non-professionals, semi-professionals, students of performing arts, members of choral groups, musicians, rappers, dancers and other creative people will ceremoniously open the Dance Festival Rhine-Main on November 2nd at Frankfurt LAB! We are looking for 40 to 50 performers aged 16 and older who enjoy movement and the use of voice and body.

People who recite, sing, make music, dance and perform, with and without previous experience can register. Rehearsal times will be held in Darmstadt, Wiesbaden and Frankfurt am Main.

"CORE" interrogates nothing less than the essence of our human togetherness. The result is a soundscape of voice and body that moves audience and performers alike.

Interested participants can register for a first open workshop with Rui Horta on Saturday, September 09, 2023. On this basis, another workshop with 40 to 50 selected participants will take place on September 10. The applicants will receive a final acceptance/rejection after the workshops on Sunday.
