START-create cultural change
“Different Pulses” is a dance video about social diversity and inclusive arts.
steptext dance project , tanzbar_bremen, (a mixed abled company) and Angeliki Mitropoulou, worked in a fruitful collaboration during the job shadowing of START program.
“Focusing on different abilities, cultural backgrounds and ages, we formed a group of five dancers with whom we created a dance video. At the studio, our artistic team discussed the notion of diversity within a socio-cultural context. We used directed improvisation as a choreographic tool and we encouraged the dancers to explore their personal movement. The Greek composer Haris Katis composed a piece based on five different instruments. Each instrument representing a distinct character and dynamics which was uniquely translated into movement by each one of the dancers.” (Angeliki Mitropoulou)
