Invitation by the Goethe-Institut in Bangladesh
Starting 5 March 2013, Angie Hiesl + Roland Kaiser will give a workshop for Hijras, the ”third gender”.
On 20 March at 7:30 pm, the results will be presented as a performance at the Goethe Institute Dhaka under the title ”Possibilities”.
Dealing with the reality, dreams, visions, and perspectives of the Hijra community, a cultural group of its own, the work in progress presentation is aiming at creating awareness for issues related to the Hijra identity in Bangladesh. Through interviews, exercises, and improvisations, Angie Hiesl + Roland Kaiser develop the work together with nine Hijra performers. They combine elements of dance, language, music, performance as well as installation.
In co-operation with tanzhaus nrw Düsseldorf, Hellerau (European Center for the Arts), Dresden, and Mercat del Flors Barcelona.
This project is part of "modul-dance" supported by the EU culture programme.
