Experimental choreographer Deborah Hay, one of the founders of Judson Dance Theater, has been a pioneer in Postmodern Dance since the 1960s, and continues to create, dance, and teach internationally. Tanz im August, one of the top international festivals celebrating contemporary dance, will celebrate Hay and her work with a RE-perspective from 1968 to the present, including two premieres. Tiny World Tours invites you to join Deborah in an intimate group experience that includes three nights in Berlin, a practice session, a talk with Deborah and the festival’s artistic director, the festival opening premier performance, and a dinner.
