TELL ME for the first time live in front of an audience
Since the first 5 chapters of the dance project could only be followed by video stream, all fans can now look forward to the first live performance. In the context of the Lab Uganda, Alfonso Fernández Sánchez will dance this time around the truck, which will stop in front of the Permanent Representation Rechts der Isar of Bellevue di Monaco at the Ladenzeile in the Gasteig near the S Bahn entrance.

Chapter 6: The power to share, connect and educate
»Sometimes the simple act of sharing a song, a poem or a thought can create a great source of inspiration in someone that allows them to open new worlds.
It seems like yesterday when, at the young age of 14, my music teacher shared with me the poem ›If‹ by the Nobel Prize winning British poet Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936), born in India. It is a poem of maximum inspiration that tells us how to deal with different situations in life. The poet conveys his ideas about how to earn this life and, after all, how to be a good human being. That poem determined a before and after for me.
The sixth chapter of the TELL ME project pays tribute to the importance of sharing, and with it being able to educate and create opportunities for cultural and personal development.
And for you, what has been that song, poem or moment that has marked a before and after?«
