Tribaldance Denmark proudly presents:


April 6-8, 2018   COPENHAGEN

Dark Weekend is an intimate and intensive weekend with focus on dark fusion dance with all  the drama, the experiments, the collaborations, the get-togethers you could wish for -

Once again we are going to occupy WAREHOUSE 9 - the perfect place for such dark matters as the Twilight Cafe .. and of course the DARK CABARET show with surprises beyond this world ... but what would DARK CPH be without some inspiring dark fusion workshops to rock the bottom of your dance shoes out?

We believe we found just the right teacher to do that:

TRIBALDANCE DENMARK is proudly welcoming
 in Copenhagen for the first time!


Ida Mahin put her first pair of ballet shoes on when she was 6 years old. Since then life without dance has been unthinkable in her sight. Preferring to thing out of the box, she continues to study diverse genres. Aesthetic and historica-cultural consideration of dances from diverses world regions brings fusions to light that see dance as a nonverbal language.

Ida's choreographies' artistic focus lies in the awakening of characters, storytelling and the mediation of truthful emotions. Both solo and with her dance companies, she brings cyber medusas, Asian warriors, undead swans and sometimes even singing foxes to life on stage. In addition, she has also contributed to the US DVD-production "Visions - a Nigh of Dark & Theatrical Belly Dance"

In her workshops Ida devotes significant attention to imparting background knowledge far off clichès. She seeks to reveal and enhance the individual skills of every single dancer.

Also, Ida is bringing her husband and partner-in-crime Maxx!
This is giving us a very special opportunity to offer you one of their colaborative workshops "Silent Movie"

Level: OPEN


Price: DKK   350  (+ paypal fee dkk 20)

ABOUT the ws:

In the pioneering days of the silver screen an actor's performance had a lot in common with a dancer's performance.

When the great dancer Vaslav Nijinsky visited Charlie Chaplin on a
film set in 1916, he stated: "Your comedy is balletique. You are a dancer"
Almost wordless yet always interpreting music, silent movies created audiovisual narratives and iconic, multi-dimensional characters that still evoke strong feelings. Which methods may
we borrow in order to inspire our very own creative proces?

How do we benefit from the fact
that, like most of the movie pioneers, we are dramaturge, director and make-up artist at the
same time? How can we transfer early cinematographic techniques to the stage?

How do we
create context without spoken word or even intertitles? Come to the monochrome metropolis
and find out!
This workshop is taught by Ida and her partner in crime Maxx who, being a media scientist, contributes profound expertise.

PERFORMER INFO / Twilight Cafe + Dark Cabaret 2018

"Twilight Cafe" is held in the lounge bar, the room is very intimate with a small bar and small stage-spot either in the middle of the room or in one corner. Here you will get the utmost "cabaret" atmosphere, performing eye-to-eye with your audience. Lighting is basic, no changing lights possible.

The stage is not big enough for group work, so we suggest this stage to only solo and duet acts.

TIME SCHEDULE: April 6, 2018
Get-in performers 18.30  (changing rooms are in the big stage room, you have to go outside between the rooms, this is old warehouses)

18.30-20.00 performers can check the room, talk to DJ

Doors open 20.00
Show time approx 20.15-22.00

Clear out 22.30

"Dark Cabaret" is held in the stage room, The room is still intimate but with more space for audience and a small lifted stage size 3x4.

Stage light is a bit more upgraded, so we can work with different settings. Dark Cabaret is programmed with 2 acts -

Act 1 will be open for performance application from solo and groups.

 Act 2 will be the special performance project fascilitated by Tribaldance Denmark. Participants are invited dancers, which includes our featured guest teacher of course :)

TIME SCHEDULE April 7, 2018:
13.00-15.00 get-in PROJECT performers only
15.00-17.00 Rehearsals PROJECT performers only

16.00-17.00 Get-in Dark Cabaret performers

18.30-19.45 performers may rehearse in stage room with earphones

20.00 Doors open
20.30 show start
22.30 show ends

clear out 23.30

To apply for a stage spot, here is what to observe:

- dance acts must have a clear "dark" and/or theatrical  theme or style - the more dark, experimental and dramatic the better. Tell us a little story of your performance, or what your idea is (2-3 lines)

- lenght max 4.00 min
- music must be send to Dud Muurmand latest MARCH 19 in either WAV or high level MP3 (no other formats accepted)

- please only apply AFTER you have booked workshops - we think very much of Dark Weekend as a community thing and the event will only run from supporting participants. If you are a group, we appreciate very much that all group members participate in workshop(s) as well.

- We welcome all levels of dance, however we might ask for a video in case we are not familiar with your work.

- You may apply for 1 or both shows, however Tribaldance Denmark will hold the right to place acts in the which ever show we find it is best suited. Also we cannot guarantee space, even if you are in workshops, but we try very hard to fit everyone in.

send email with your info to Dud Muurmand:


Deadline: March 1, 2018

You will be notified shortly after about your stage spot.
