Performance and Filming of The NELKEN-Line

May 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Greetings, dancers in CT and beyond! I am organizing a performance and low-tech filming of visionary choreographer Pina Bausch’s The NELKEN-Line. It is one of her iconic, simple walking phrases with repeated hand gestures. The Pina Bausch Foundation has coolly made the choreography available to all through May ‘19 as part of this project, which includes submitting the video for the Foundation’s website.

Date: Saturday, May 18th,  1:30. Rain date: Sunday, May 19th, time TBD. Location: Old Saybrook, along the water and marsh.

Please join me! You just need to learn the phrase in the excellent instructional video in the link below and download Louis Armstrong’s “West End Blues” to practice. You can view other groups’ videos from all over the world, too. Please email me at for more details and if you are interested. Because #danceiseverywhere… or it should be ❤️
