Event Details

The choreographer Gerda König doesn’t seem to be a dancer. She is tied to a wheelchair; due to a disease she barely has muscles on arms and legs. But once Gerda König steps on stage she tantalizes the whole audience. Her artistic works are about the taboos she experiences in her everyday life. When she started working in Nairobi she discovered taboos everywhere.  Gerda König decides to create a dance with disabled performers in Kenya. The film demonstrates how art is capable of creating bridges between people with and without disabilities, as well as among continents, races and cultures.

It's Free Entrance
