Dance Update Germany

The project supports meetings and dialogue at the international dance fair nrw, Düsseldorf 2022, and
CINARS, conference and festival Montreal 2022

For the year 2022, Dachverband Tanz Deutschland wants to launch a pilot project for a joint presence of dance from Germany for the first time, on the one hand at the international tanzmesse nrw in August 2022 and at CINARS in Montreal/Canada in November 2022.

The idea is not to have the usual booth, but rather a presentation and meeting space (dialogue space) where artists and other professionals can talk about artistic and social issues and engage in creative processes.

A current section of the dance scene in Germany, with new productions, established as well as emerging artists and fresh ideas: Dance Update Germany!

The concept will be developed together with networks, associations and initiatives that already present their regional artists and companies, for example at the international dance fair nrw, such as the nrw landesbuero tanz and the TanzSzene Baden-Württemberg.

The jury has decided!

The project "Dance Update Germany" can support and present 24 artists who are producing in Germany at our booth at tanzmesse nrw. Congrates and we are looking forward to the exchange.
