THANK YOU to Christopher Roman and the DANCE ON ENSEMBLE of the 1st EDITION


With the end of the DANCE ON 1st EDITION and on the eve of its second big phase comes the time to thank the Artistic Director and dancers of the 1st EDITION. Christopher Roman joined our initiative in July 2014. His contribution was vital to the entire project, including its participatory and research strands. From November 2015 to April 2018 he was the Artistic Director of the DANCE ON ENSEMBLE and the DANCE ON Festival, while also dancing in the ensemble himself, alongside Brit Rodemund, Ty Boomershine, Jone San Martin, Frédéric Tavernini, Amancio Gonzalez and Ami Shulman. His and the dancers’ exceptional dedication turned the project’s pilot phase into an outstanding success story. For almost four years their radiance, experience, creative energy and incredible dance knowledge carried the DANCE ON mission out into the world. For the 2nd EDITION, the ensemble will be opened up to new members and artistic collaborations.


Claudia Henne, dedicated observer of the 1st EDITION from the very beginning, honours the dancers‘ achievement with a personal tribute:


…it has to be dance…
