Performance at Munsterplatz

Come and see my latest creation for the Basel Mission at a beautiful open air stage in Munsterplatz!!! The theme of the festival is hope... So I took the same theme to inspire a quirky piece with two dancers and two musicians.

From 8 to 14 June 2015 Mission celebrates 21 birthday of its Basel Mission with guests and contributions from four continents. The highlight of the anniversary week is a major international festival on Sunday, June 14 at the Münsterplatz in Basel. A varied program with music, market stalls, culinary delights and a child-friendly program to make the festival an experience for the whole family.

My favorite answer from Lydia Bustinduy:

on dancing with someone you don't get along with...

Dancing with someone you do not get along with is, forgive my comparison, like wearing an uncomfortable shirt. After wearing it for a while, one gets used to it and maybe it even becomes one of your favorite shirts.

Great news!

Armando featured in the Basler Zeitung Newspaper

What a nice surprise!

An English translation is below.

A Rough English translation:


From New York City to Basel

Armando Braswell dances his third season at the Theater Basel - and is excited about the new home.
His kids will love the Zolli. And the Autumn Fair, the many treats - or ride on the carousel. The proximity of the Rhine. And the playgrounds in the park. If Armando Braswell sees his two sons Noah and Gabe grow up in Basel, carefree and safe, he is grateful. For he himself had a difficult childhood, had to fight through bite zweitweise. The dancers grew up in the major American metropolis of New York. When he was 9 years old, he lost his biological mother, Armando and his twin sister came to adoptive parents. His "new" mother took care of ten children, she was overwhelmed financially, what the children were feeling. Eventually, the house burned down, there was Braswell 16. "I've decided to move out and continue to stand on their own two feet." He stayed with friends on the floor, on the couch, sometimes in hallways. During this time he danced a lot, several hours a day, cut on his technique. "For two years, the dancing everything for me, it gave me confidence and new courage to face life," says the Americans. At 18, he danced at the Juilliard School, one of the most respected and recognized music conservatories in the world. Only twelve men are taken annually, Braswell did not make it on the first try. A year later, he convinced the strict jury - and was able to resume the study: "The four years were incredibly intense, and hard. More than once I wanted to stop. It is constantly compared with others is never good enough. I was mentally to my limits, "he says. A teacher believed in his talent and finally persuaded him to quit the study. "I'm the first one in our family who managed a degree. This fills me with pride. "

First Munich, then Stuttgart

Two weeks later, he left with his wife Lisa, who he has known since college, New York to audition in Munich. He managed thanks to the recommendation of a friend at the Theater am Gärtnerplatz, danced there for one year. Then, as the artistic director joined the couple Braswell moved on to Stuttgart. He was one of the founding members of the dance ensemble "Gauthier Dance". For five years he remained in Stuttgart. He repeatedly asked about Basel, "the ballet has an excellent international reputation." In 2012, he was able to convince the ballet director Richard Wherlock the audition and got a permanent contract in ballet ensemble. That was 2012. Today, the American and lives with his family in width district, directly on the Rhine - and is excited about the city. "Basel is alive, provides day and night cultural events. I find here everything I need to live, "says one, who grew up in the big city of New York. The dancer shakes his head: "New York is not as glamorous as many believe. Only those who have money, you can live without worries. Without it can also be very hard. "That's why Braswell sees his future here in a European city like Basel. They offer better prospects for his children who already speak German.

Lisa's Cupcakes

His wife Lisa wants to establish its own foothold here, she bakes cupcakes Armando Braswell must test every day. "As a dancer I train enough to I can afford it," he says with a wink. He is aware that he is one with 31 already for the older iron. "I dance as long as I can dance," he says on his future plans addressed. His own blog - "L'interview de l'air", which he feeds every two weeks with a new artist portrait, have awakened another passion in him to take those for writing, journalism foot, would thus be an option for him: "What I learned as a teenager in New York: There's always a new chance at life. You just have to believe in it. "

Birthdays gifts from other artists....


Lydia Caruso


A Italian writer/poet/dancer - An original poem for Interview En L' air's birthday - in the original Italian. An English translation offered below. 8 seconds of silence is before the poem.

A poem for Interview En L'air by Lydia Caruso spoken by Spoken by Cristiana Sciabordi. by Armando Braswell on Mixcloud


English translation

“Inspiration comes of working everyday” - Baudelaire. When you want to make art, any kind of art, first of all, you don’t need inspiration; you need to work. Spend hours, days, maybe years? And suddenly, during this process, INSPIRATION finally will come, like a bright light in your mind. With the inspiration, CURIOSITY will appear. As the curiosity to have a free access into the artist life and asking why? When? How? Knowing interesting details of their carrier, find things in common between theirs life and yours. Simples details, but also advices basing on the experience. Armando Braswell, the creator of “Interview en l’air”, he had both, inspiration and curiosity, but the power of his project is the trust and the sincerity of the artists he choose for it. TRUST which is not so easy to give; you are letting the custody of little parts of your life... remembers, stories, anecdotes, into the care of another person who will share it with the world. And SINCERITY, I can only say extraordinary in our time. Well, in “Interview en l’air", I could clearly perceive it. Finally, the result of all that is an agreeable INTERCHANGE. And is pleasant to see growing a project which is not based on money, but as I said before, in inspiration, curiosity, trust and sincerity. Only in exchange of not more than a hundred words shared with people. This is the reason why “Interview en l’air” has to keep on growing. Let us the enjoyment to know artists as they really are, taking off the mask and showing themselves. Like on stage, but with no lights, no decor, no movements or acting; only few white letters on a black background. Happy birthday “Interview en l’air”!! Hope to keep reading it in the years to come.

Thank you Lydia!!!!!

Donate to Interview En L'air

I want to share these inspirational interviews with the world.

Advertising and promotion is expensive! I use Facebook to promote my weekly interviews. 52 weeks in a year, and at least 5 bucks to start the promotion. You do the math... The more I pay, the more people Facebook will show the post to.Very clever Facebook... anyway, I get what I pay for. Up until now it has been OK but I can't go on like this... I have to ask for help! I have gotten great feedback and these artists are worth being heard!

I was fortunate enough to have many people in my life who helped me keep moving forward.

They believed in me. This series is dedicated to all my “angels” who have helped me through those years. They have helped to shape the man I am today. I am not rich or famous, but I am living my dream and I am happy. I am a lucky guy. I hope that this series will help those who have not had the luck I had. It just takes a few words, to make you think… and that’s a start.

Childrens workshop in Zug!

Richard Wherlock and I taught two days of workshops before our performance in Zug. I had a great time teaching these kids to move! They were a great, focused group. I was shocked to see that we also had a lot of boys there! I started to dance in a program similar to this one. I think it is a great thing especially at that age. Great work guys!!! check out the slide show above.

Armando performs on SYTYCD Ukraine

A solo performance

My latest appearance on SYTYCD Ukraine. This time as a dancer...  I choreographed this piece just for the show. My 5th premiere in Ukraine. The music is Nat King Cole singing " Nature Boy". It was a cool experience... the cameras moving around you... next time I create, I will think differently... very inspiring.
