Choreographic Radio at The International Tanzkongress 2016 in Hannover

Choreographic Radio has been broadcasting regular programs on Radio-On-Berlin challenging the medium as to ‘what is dance on radio ?’ They explore the transmission of ideas and structures in dance and choreography to the medium of radio. They have been invited to make a program at the International Tanz Congress in Hannover with a 2 hour studio audience workshop before the 60 minute live program. Seemingly an impossible task!

A new program for Radio On is presented by Sonja Augart, Annette van Zwoll, Zeina Hanna and Sonja Heller. The program is called Choreographic Radio. It is the same program as is mentioned here.
