The waves created by this sensational new contemporary dance piece reached even The New York Times. The fruit of an astonishing collaboration in Berlin between an Israeli choreographer and three Syrian refugee dancers, this piece explores what happens when Syrian dancers trained at home in ballet, musicals and folklore arrive in the contemporary dance world of Berlin, with its radical exploration of freedom, the body, sexuality and identity.
COME AS YOU ARE premiered in 2017 at Berlin’s DOCK11 with 18 consecutive sold-out shows, followed by 6 sold-out shows in Leipzig at LOFT. Yiddish Summer Weimar is honored to present the first performance of this important new work in Weimar.
SPECIAL OFFER! The Dance Ball follows directly after COME AS YOU ARE. The combination ticket gives you entry to both events at a considerable discount. So come join us on the dance floor following this special performance!
