The company DieTanzKompanie, founded in 2020 by Grégory Darcy in the region of Stuttgart (Germany), creates performance work with eight dancers and three musicians, presented at prestigious venues and festivals in Germany and internationally.
More Info about the company
With his company, the French choreographer wants to bring the issue of disability and dance to the attention of the audience at a high level. It is also a wish to deal with social questions about perfection, acceptance of being different and ideals of beauty. But his performances are more, a desire for a world in which people are not categorized as black or white, refugees or locals, disabled or able-bodied. "I wish for a world where there are only human beings." In connection with various types of physical and mental capacities, new styles of movement and dance are emerging, accompanied by live compositions. For Grégory Darcy, this quickly becomes a must with this extraordinary ensemble, because music and dance only work here in direct interaction.
Prize won by the dance company
The jury of the highly endowed art prize "The Power of The Arts" was enthusiastic about DieTanzKompanie: "Dance is touch, is a different form of speaking. People with and without disabilities can develop new and innovative forms of expression here in the world of dance.”
