Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company - Ioannis Mandafounis

À la carte


The internationally renowned Greek choreographer Ioannis Mandafounis introduces himself as the new artistic director of the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company with À la carte, a large-scale work that has received enthusiastic reviews.

As with a restaurant menu, its structure is set in advance. What is presented on stage, however, is shaped by the dancers in real time, as per Mandafounis’ familiar choreographic method.

The starting point is always the encounter between the ensemble and the audience, just as if they were cooking a colorful menu together. The Festival extends this generous invitation to spectators, signalling the opening of this year’s Dance programme.

30 June Post-show talk with the artists.
