On tour now: ISLANDS of EMPATHY by Club Guy & Roni and Slagwerk Den Haag
In an age where cultural boundaries are melting away, ISLANDS of EMPATHY (in a sea of chaos) embodies a vibrant patchwork of identities, the harmony within diversity, and the rhythms of change that define the world you live in.
How can we evoke empathy? Where do we find each other? And can we find a shared language that connects us
Mixing together an international dance company, two senegalese superstars, a renowned percussion group and a composer/DJ with a passion for energy, you get a world of new possibilities. A world where we are not divided by differences, but connected in our empathy for each other. A world where we become islands of empathy, in a sea of chaos.
Join us in celebrating the universal language of dance and the power of unity, and let ISLANDS of EMPATHY (in a sea of chaos) be a part of your own unique story.
ISLANDS of EMPATHY is a collaboration with Senegalese griots; storytellers who keep traditions and history alive with dance, music and poetry. In the summer of 2023, we headed to Senegal; to talk with spiritual leaders, dancers and artists about empathy and community. These intercultural conversations formed the blueprint for this performance.
