This week marks a thrilling opportunity for students at CPPM, as the internationally celebrated Young Boy Dancing Group (YBDG) conducts an exclusive workshop culminating in an open class on Thursday, 30 November at 19:00 in EMTA Black Box.

Established in 2014, YBDG began as a dynamic dance ensemble, gaining its name in 2015 and featuring a rotating cast of talented performers. The company has captivated audiences worldwide, performing at prestigious venues and events such as Oflaherty NYC, Mendes Wood Gallery Sao Paulo in 2023, Unter NYC, Kunsthalle Osnabrück in 2022, Freiburg Biennale, and Art Hub Copenhagen in 2021. Their notable appearances include the Disappearing Berlin, Schinkel Pavilion Berlin, and a solo exhibition at OCD Chinatown NYC in 2019. The group’s influential presence was also felt at the Baltic Triennial, Tallinn and Athens Biennale in 2018, as well as the Lithuanian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2015, and Silencio, Paris in 2014.

The workshop offered by YBDG is not just a set of choreographic instructions but an intimate journey into the world of modern dance. It aims to create a sense of belonging within the group, encouraging participants to dance together, express emotions freely, and find comfort in collective stillness. The workshop fosters an environment where vulnerability becomes a strength, allowing participants to delve into their raw emotions through dance while embodying a punk attitude towards modern dance.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn from and interact with the Young Boy Dancing Group, an ensemble known for its innovative and emotionally charged performances. Join us for the open class on Thursday to witness the fruits of this exciting workshop!
