Almost 500 years ago, in summer 1518, Europe was struck for the first time by a strange disease. With no prior warning, first individuals, then entire masses were overcome by an excessive dance craze. Cities, villages and entire regions were subsequently taken by surprise. Driven by her fascination for this phenomenon, choreographer and dancer Lea Martini – reputed throughout the German dance scene as an expert for physically extreme situations, is hosting a series of choreomanic outbreaks with “Tanzplage Frankfurt” (Dance Plague Frankfurt). The dance plague begins with a solo by the host. Then, after an incubation period, a concert leads to an massive outbreak.
