The crossing point between spirituality and art
Artistic director: Ingo Taleb Rashid
El Haddawi Dance Company was founded in 1990 by Ingo Taleb Rashid. It is made up of members of the ‘School for Movement Concept® usually in collaboration with dancers from other countries and styles on a project-by-project basis. It is based near Munich, Germany.
El Haddawi dance theatre productions are the result of an artistic exploration of spiritual themes and are to a large extent influenced by the ideas of medieval mystery plays. We are trying to find special moments of silence which contains the mystery to build up a new form of stage presence.
In addition to productions at theatres, El Haddawi offers seminars with „work-in-progress “-performances.
Putting emphasis on dance theatre work, El Haddawi aims at encouraging encounters with people of different cultural affiliations as well as the exchange of different spiritual paths and artistic styles.
