GovendaKÎ means "Govenda Kurdi International" (Kurdish Dance International)
GovendaKÎ is a dance-action group open for everybody, young and old, advanced or beginner.
The group was founded in early 2012 by several people of different origins as a social-cultural initiative. Regularly every Saturday, the group meets from 7 pm to 10 pm. We learn traditional dances, especially from all regions of Kurdistan, but also dances of other oppressed and threatened people. The group is of international composition: people originally from Kurdistan as well as from Syria, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Greece, Serbia, France and Germany participate as they want and need to - some of us come regularly others only from time to time. We also take part in dance performances or on solidarity events regarding various topics (for example donation collecting for hospitals and schools in the war zones of Syria) or simply dance in public places.
We dance with and for refugees, who have to live in "first reception centers" and "refugee camps" as well and sometimes we organize festivals and dance-picnics together. People who had to flee their home countries often after traumatizing experiences during armed conflict or political crises need first of all the feeling of being welcome and understood when arriving here in Germany, a country that is foreign and strange to them. Dancing together, being active and learning from each other is one possibility to preserve self-respect in the often destructive conditions in the camps.The group is non professional and non profit. When performing, those of the group who have time and the wish to do so come along.
