Welcome to the virtual home of the Breakfast Club Collective, a multi-dimensional collective of performers and choreographers from all over Europe and Israel.
The Breakfast Club is a multi-dimensional collective of eleven performers and choreographers from all over Europe and Israel. Its members are Asaf Aharonsson, Cécile Bally, Stine Frandsen, Marc Philipp Gabriel, Renen Itzhaki, Julek Kreutzer, Anna Lena Lehr, Tabea Xenia Magyar, Liselotte Singer, Emma Tricard, Nir Vidan and Kasia Wolinska.
The collective was formed in 2012 in Berlin, when we met on the occasion of our studies at the Inter-University Centre for Dance. It successfully continues to exist beyond the institutional frame and we have been working together for the past 4 years in multiple ways: We have been outside-eyes, light-designers, technicians, dramaturgs, dialogue-partners and performers in each other’s work, have invited work of Brekkies whenever possible and collaborated on the creation of new pieces and events.
Beyond this, the Breakfast Club aims at providing a stable and supportive network of fellow artists and therefore creates regular events that gather the whole group, one of them being the “Nomadic Residency”.
Nomadic Residency 2018
We are extremely happy that the Nomadic residency continues. In May this year we will reunite at a yet unknown place – probably the desert! There are no plans yet as to what we will do there concretely – we might participate in a festival. But for sure we will cook, reflect, hang out, make art and hear what all of us have been up to this past year.
At the moment the only project we would like to share with you is the Nomadic Residency. Scroll down for further information.
The “Nomadic Residency” is a week-long residency which is dedicated to a specific theme and happens every year in a different home country and house of one of the Brekkies. It as well offers us the unique opportunity to come together after a year-long intake of information and travel and it provides a suitable environment for reflection, inspiration, exchange and recovery. It is a chance for practicing alternatives to the precariously individualizing conditions of the contemporary art market (one is constantly on the move, trying to promote one’s own work, competing against one’s peers). The “Nomadic Residency” is an initiative by and for artists. It is an initiative from within our community which bypasses the institutional framework of theater or dance-houses and curators and emphasizes mutual support and solidarity. Until now, we’ve been dancing in the garden of a Polish cottage, constructed an outdoor stage in the French Pyrenees and performed in 7 different sites of a tiny tourist town on the Danish coast, improvised in the midst of fields in the french farming country side and traveled in the desert in Israel/Palestine.
