Bautanzt Here
(“bau” - build, “tanzt” - dances, German)
is a site-specific dance theatre in Atlanta, GA.

Bautanzt Here has a new home! ! !
In March 2021 we started rehearsing at Dance Hub ATL, a new creative structure in the Atlanta dance scene, which formation Nadya facilitated. Dance Hub ATL is a part of Hambidge Cross-Pollination Art Lab. 
Follow @dance_hub_atl on Instagram to stay in the know about live and online open rehearsals, shows and experiments. 

Nadya Zeitlin // Bautanzt Here just premiered Archs and Textures at the Spring For Spring Dance Festival. This duet was created during Excuse The Art 2021 program, and will be further developed into a quartet site-specific performance.

In other news, 
Nadya along with collaborators - butoh performer Frankie Mulinix (Vandellous) and visual artists Dima Alekseyev and Katya Kouznetsova - recently presented a work called Hollow Bones both in studio settings (Dance Hub ATL) and in Piedmont Park.

Bautanzt Here 
is a team of strong dancers under direction of experienced 
artistic director / dance designer. 

We merge dance and theatre
creating a unique language to tell meaningful and visually engaging stories in unconventional spaces.

We create unique and valuable art experiences for audiences, putting their routine on pause and suggesting them a gift of wonder.

We want to make the art of dance more accessible and bring it to the audiences who usually don't attend dance performances.
