TachoTinta is an initiative of Silvia Ehnis Perez Duarte to bring together dance makers and movers to collaborate with musicians and media artists. Together they search for innovative approaches to rethink and empower contemporary dance as a sensorial medium of communication between people. The international ensemble varies according to each specific project. Since 2015, TachoTinta has been the frame for encounters of the founding members: Mijin Kim, Sooyeon Kim, Mirjam Schirk, Seulki Hwang and Silvia Ehnis with more than 15 artists from different backgrounds.
TachoTinta is grant holder of the Scholarship Flausen for 2019. In 2017 they were co-produced by tanz.tausch – tanz und performance festival.
