Dance karaoke takes the concept of singing karaoke and expands it to dance. You choose your favourite clip from a range of pre-recorded videos and the clip is projected onto a big screen so people can dance along, accompanied by a DJ.

Be part of a great dance experience!

In July, Viennese dance artist Willi Dorner visited Munich and recorded people dancing to their favourite song at a location of their choice – from their living room to a forest or even a public building, nothing was off-limits. He used the recorded material to create video dance clips that will be shown at the big dance karaoke evening to celebrate the opening of the Münchner Volkshochschule adult education centre at HP8. Visitors can then copy the moves – this is lots of fun and designed so that absolutely everybody can join in.

 

The dance karaoke project aims to revive the old tradition of people dancing together. Willi Dorner is active internationally. As well as creating pieces for the theatre, a large part of his work involves coming up with formats that give the general public an opportunity to see everyday life from a different angle. More information is available here.

 

The event is organised by the Gasteig to welcome the MVHS adult education centre, who will move to HP8 in October, and is intended for a mixed audience.
