Practicing Empathy #2by2


“Practicing Empathy” is a series developed by choreographer Yasmeen Godder and her company since 2019, which has produced a variety of projects that explore forms of empathy. “Practicing Empathy #2by2” was created in response to the first lockdown in spring 2021. The non-verbal interactive movement format invites eight audience members to each dive into an individual shared experience with one of eight dancers in the studios of the Mousonturm, in doing so develop new perspectives on the rules of hygiene and distancing. How can connections, intimacy and emotional affinity be established despite a distance? For the Frankfurt performances, Yasmeen Godder and her company have given the piece to dancers from the Rhine-Main area. It can be visited as a stand-alone performance or as a perfect warm-up for “Practicing Empathy #3”.
