36 talented dancers will take over the city of Amsterdam from 19 till 28 October and will join the Culture Clash battle on 20 October and will train for the try out and show on 27 October.
The intercultural dance week Culture Clash, organized by Build Your Dream foundation, is an international exchange project in Amsterdam with 36 dancers from the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Turkey and Italy. This year Culture Clash 4.0 will take place from 19 till 28 October.
During this project, the participants will share and present their individual experiences, culture and various dance styles. Each group consists of five dancers and a coach. We will disassemble these groups. In each new group there will be someone from each country, so we create mixed groups with different nationalities, dance styles, habits and cultures. This ‘clash of cultures’ is the main topic of the project. So each coach gets a new group of five dancers. These groups will create a dance performance together, that will be presented during the try out and the final show in theatre Podium Mozaïek in Amsterdam Sunday 27 October 2019. This dance performance is not just an act, but it is a dance expression of cultural diversity represented in the group.
Also the dancers (mostly freestylers) will join the Culture Clash all style battle Sunday 20 October 2019.
