Since 2013 Oito Solos + 1 creates a platform to develop individual artistic work. In Oito Solos + 1 the voices that otherwise merge in the work of Grupo Oito become articulate individually. Members of the collective develop a solo and show them, along with the solo work of an invited dance artist, in a joint performance night. The platform was born from the urge to move and make art while being fostered by the desire to create spaces for experiments and possibilities for feedback on artistic processes. Over the years, Oito Solos + 1 has become a platform to build strong ties to the contemporary dance scene in Berlin.
