Harmony Day P23 5

Last week on Tuesday, March 21st was 'The international day to eliminate racial discrimination', also known as Harmony Day in some parts of the world. We took this opportunity in the primary school to reflect on what classes are doing to promote inclusion and anti-racism in their classes. A presentation was created and shown at an assembly on Friday the 24th of March.

Theater-Dance Performance and Project Week

The project week was a dance-theatre workshop related to the performance piece “Patterns”, that was performed at Ballhaus Naunynstrasse. It was conceived of by Magda Korsinsky and was developed together with the Black women* performers. It was based on their everyday experiences as Black women*. 

The choreographer/director Magda Korsinksy reconceived the piece for NMS students and came on the first project day to introduce the work and then her assistant Tatiana Mejia Matos and the musician from the play, Jarita Freydank, continued the workshop for the rest of the week leading up to the assembly on March 24th. One group of fifth grade students and one group of sixth grade students participated and each group created their own piece with movements based on the patterns of their lives. Such patterns included talking to friends, cooking with a parent, or playing video games. One student from each group learned to accompany the dancers on the drums. The dance was performed at all three assemblies so that the entire student body could experience this performance piece based on the patterns of the lives of NMS students.
