"It's all about us and the music" - Random Circles is a one-of-a-kind platform for dance, music, creativity, and passion as well as artistic and cultural exchange in the world. After the open-air edition last summer in line with COVID-regulations, the Frankfurt-based dancers' collective Fresh Fruits Movement, together with its friends from all over the world, will occupy the Künstler*innenhaus Mousonturm for the first time to celebrate movement and music with workshops, battles, jam & connect sessions, artistic crossovers and extraordinary dance performances. Since its founding in 2014, the festival has opened up spaces for all dance enthusiasts—whether as dancers or as audience members—to come together with dancers and musicians working in local and international scenes. It offers a unique opportunity not only to watch masters of their craft improvise, but also to become part of the community yourself.
Dancer Edwin Batalla and his crew will present new genres and styles at the festival, draw connections between different formats, host brand-new pieces by international choreographers, and invite everyone to Random Circle’s main event: the battles in various styles. Artistic exchange has always been central to Random Circles; the point is not to win, but to accept and grapple with the challenge.
Workshops require individual ticket purchases. The day ticket gives access to all afternoon events that follow one another.
Random Circles is a project by Fresh Fruits Movement in cooperation with Künst-ler*innenhaus Mousonturm as a part of Tanzplattform Rhein-Main. It is supported by the Crespo Foundation as well as by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Canadian Government as a part of the cultural program at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2020, where Canada was invited as the guest of honor.
