Our colleague and friend Bea Kießlinger died a few days ago. On the board of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland and since 2017 in the project management of Tanzpakt Stadt-Land-Bund / kulturpolitischer Dialog she has decisively shaped our work. With passion and commitment she has fought for the interests of the dance scene. Her ideas, concepts and countless conversations advanced our dialogue between dance and politics.
Bea turned 58 in February. After a long illness, she died surrounded by her family. We mourn for them. Our thoughts and gratitude are with her. Our condolences go out to her parents, her sister and her daughter.
