We are DANZANKÓ – an international stilt dancing collective from Berlin.
With our production DisTouched we want to fill the streets with poetry in motion and share our unique language of stilt dancing with the world.


DisTouched – a dance performance on stilts

Three women, three nationalities, three stories that merged into one.

DisTouched is a touching and multi-faceted stilt dance performance in public space that talks about the ups and downs of life with lightness and poetry. DisTouched is about friendship and loneliness and the search for our place in society. Exploring touch, closeness and distance, the three dancers move playfully and gracefully on their stilts across the 360° stage, while taking the audience on an emotional journey.
