Afro-Caribbean workshops for children and adults
Intercultural encounters and, of course, my own journey through cultures sensitised me to socio-cultural issues very early on.
In the workshops, participants are encouraged and challenged to reflect and question. New and fruitful encounters can take place in dance and other activities such as singing and cooking together, in which personal life experiences as well as cultural and socio-political events can be expressed in a creative, structured and liberating way.
Tolerdance for children
Working together and dancing
In a 3-9 hour workshop, many different creative activities such as dancing, singing and storytelling through body movement lead to small choreographies and a wonderful exchange of cultures. A great challenge for children aged 8 to 12 and teenagers.

An Afro-dance and come together cookery workshop
Although we live in a multicultural and globalised society, we increasingly exist alongside each other rather than with each other. This is also true in international companies. At Ratatouille, interaction and communication are not limited to the level of dance, but extend to my other great passion: Caribbean cuisine. Cooking and eating together creates an atmosphere in which topics can be discussed more openly and people from different social, cultural and political backgrounds can come together.social, cultural and political backgrounds feel free to talk about their personal life experiences.

Vodou Goes East- Challenging European
„VOUDOU GOES EAST“ – A Challenge to European Contemporary Dance, a field project by Karine LaBel and Angela Vadori, offers dancers the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the essence of Haitian Vodou dance, a living system of embodied knowledge, a dance and belief system. This field project explores how Haitian Vodou dance is (mis)interpreted in the context of European contemporary dance & performance, and to what extent the (unreflected) perceptions can be challenged and how the understanding of the body can be turned into a place of knowledge and resistance.
