AN EVENING OF LAVANI
This year Tanztage Berlin welcome the interdisciplinary art festival Gender Bender from Bangalore in South India as their guest and present a performance: An Evening of Lavani. Music, dance, songs and stories – the traditional dance form Lavani is mostly performed by women and has often been considered adult entertainment for men. This evening brings a contemporary context to the dance and promises to turn the male gaze upside down.
