The NELKEN-Line is coming to Tramway!

A celebration of iconic choreographer Pina Bausch, the NELKEN-Line, which has spread across the world like a global ‘Mexican wave’ of dance, is probably the best known dance element in all of Pina’s works.

Just a few distinct gestures, the sequence tells the story of the four seasons, with dancers proceeding in a long line.

Since the Pina Bausch Foundation called for dance lovers of all ages - professionals and amateurs - to create their own NELKEN-Lines, they’ve been springing up in France, Ireland, Chile, Cyprus, Spain and Germany…now it’s your chance to join in!

Come along to learn the simple moves, then help to create Tramway’s very own NELKEN-Line. This is a drop-in workshop for all ages and abilities, and our dance will be filmed and shared online.

This event is part of Glasgow’s NELKEN-Line which is led by Intergenerational dance Party and supported by The Work Room.
