Das facettenreiche Programm dreht sich in diesem Jahr ausschließlich um die Preis­träger*innen. Gleich zwei Stücke von Marco Goecke sind Teil des Programms. Lilith Hakobyan vom Staatsballett Hannover tanzt zu Musik der Sängerin Barbara das Solo Tué, das Marco Goecke 2009 Prinzessin Caroline von Monaco widmete, als Würdigung ihres jahrelangen Engagements für den Tanz. Rosario Guerra und Louis Steinmetz, ebenfalls vom Staatsballett Hannover, präsentieren außerdem Marco Goeckes Duett Midnight Raga, dessen Titel auf die klassische indische Musik zurückgeht.

Christoph Winkler zeigt sein Stück Coming together zur Musik der gleichnamigen Komposition von Federic Rzewski, gespielt vom internationalen Zafraan Ensemble. Tänzer*innen aus den Niederlanden, Nigeria, Neuseeland und Deutschland setzen sich mit dem Körper in Aufruhr auseinander und erforschen das Potenzial des Körpers für Protest.

Reinhild Hoffmann begibt sich in ihrer eigens für den Anlass kreierten Performance Solange man unterwegs ist… auf die Reise in ihre künstlerische Vergangenheit und lässt ihr Werk der letzten Jahrzehnte in der Gegenwart erfahrbar werden.

Der im Rahmen des Förderprogramms Chance Tanz des Vereins Aktion Tanz entstandene Film WE LIVE IN A STRANGE WORLD - a dance film inspired by the speeches of Greta Thunberg von Christin und Carola Schmidt wird als Beispiel für die Arbeit des Vereins präsentiert.

 


Projects

Through initiatives and projects, Dachverband Tanz Deutschland advances the nationwide issues of dance and its impact in many areas of society. Here we present our ongoing projects and funding programs.

 


DIS- TANZEN Festival 2022 - Impressions

From July 8 to 10, 2022, the DIS-TANZEN Festival took place at the Malzfabrik in Berlin. Funded participants from both subprograms DIS-TANZ-SOLO and DIS-TANZ-IMPULS presented their findings, research and performances made possible by the funding.


Last weekend, the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland (umbrella organization for dance in Germany) organized a festival that presented the projects created in the DIS-TANZEN funding program and, in addition to looking back, also addressed questions about future creative possibilities. More than 200 dance professionals funded by DIS-TANZEN came together at the Malzfabrik in Berlin to exchange views on their funded projects and their artistic work within the past two years, to take stock and to benefit from each other's insights and results in a joint exchange.

The festival included formats exclusively designed by grantees, resulting in a diverse and exciting program: in addition to numerous sharing sessions and discussion rounds, participants also encountered each other dancing and actively in various workshop formats. In addition, performances and videos created within the framework of the funding were presented to the entire audience on two evenings. The formats were accompanied by a two-day exhibition of film and photo projects.

The focus of the festival was on the appreciation of the artists' work and sharing as a possibility to talk about one's own work, thus giving space to the development processes and the very diverse results.

Friday's program also included an exchange on cultural policy issues, which focused the discussion on the findings of the funding program and possibilities for future funding programs. Moderated by Michael Freundt, the participants, jury members, and representatives of cultural policy engaged in conversation.

 


Work Areas

The Federal Association for Dance in Germany acts in the long term as a network partner for dance professionals, cultural practitioners, civil society actors, and policymakers. The fields of work include all issues related to the development of dance art and its visibility - from dance education, production and presentation of dance, dance research and dance science to documentation, public relations and presence of dance in the media. Furthermore, the DTD strives for a comprehensive participation of all citizens in the diversity of the art of dance.
