About TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA
Together with the Department of Arts and Culture of the City of Munich, every year since 1991 JOINT ADVENTURES has organized TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA – a workshop for new ideas and aesthetics in contemporary dance and performance and hot spot for choreographers, teachers and professionals – for all people who take great delight in dancing. The audience comes from Munich, Bavaria and the whole world.
The TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA offers a wide range of workshops in the fields of contemporary dance, performance, body work, Hip Hop and break dance. The workshops are aimed at professionals as well as amateurs from Munich and the entire world. In the last few years, important dancers and choreographers such as Jonathan Burrows, Boris Charmatz, Laurent Chétouane, Gill Clarke, Christine De Smedt, Xavier Le Roy, Constanza Macras or Meg Stuart.
In addition to the workshop program, during these ten days TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA presents current works by renowned trailblazers of contemporary dance in a top-notch performance program. Newcomers are also invited to present their works to the Munich audience.
For the first time in 2011, a three-day symposium took place at the TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA. The format is directed at professional dance and theater practitioners as well as researchers, critics, students and a general public. In lectures, workshops and discussions, questions about theories, concepts or aesthetics in contemporary dance are raised and investigated.
