IBB - International Meeting
Berlin - Brazil
IBB was a 2-year exchange program for arts and cultural education. The program was initiated by Florian Hoffmeier & Elena Scherer and brought together two groups of young adults from the TerraBrasilis artist group in Berlin and the Água de Beber group in Fortaleza (Brazil).
The program included various workshops on the subjects of the environment, culture, dance, language and movement. Several performances, photo shoots and presentations of artistic works were performed in Berlin at the Ufa-Fabrik cultural center and in Fortaleza (Brazil) at the Tribos, Berimbaus e Tambores 2010 festival.
The result of music workshops led to the production of CD with Afro-Brazilian rhythms and music.
