Workshops & Performances
July 28 – August 7, 2020
This year the Corona Pandemic changed our world from one day to the next! The worldwide lockdown has led to drastic restrictions in the performing arts, especially in dance – theatres had to close, trainings were forbidden, travelling no longer possible. Thanks to the deconfinement in many areas, we are happy to be able to realize TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA this summer in Munich in a safe and responsible way for and with you.
In addition to the workshops and summer Intensives, this year's programme also includes lectures, an open-air symposium and seven productions by (inter-)nationally reknowned artists.
Advance booking for the performances starts soon – we‘ll keep you updated!

SOLID GROUND – CHALLENING SPACE trains and educates creating important contacts to the international professional dance scene for dance and choreography students before their graduation year. The program serves as an orientation for the future international working environment even before the students’ dance formation is completed. It is also a unique occasion to personally network among fellow students from all over Europe.
Cancellation of guest performances due to the coronavirus
The current situation presents us all with completely new challenges and has significant impact, particularly in the cultural sector, which must be considered on an individual basis. Within the framework of NATIONALES PRFORMANCE NETZ, we receive numerous inquiries regarding the legal consequences of the cancellation of already approved guest performances due to the coronavirus.
The following options apply to guest performances that have already been granted:
From March 4 to 8, 2020 TANZPLATTFORM DEUTSCHLAND took place in Munich! A total of 558 productions was registered for the review period after the last edition, of which 444 were reviewed. 15 productions were selected by the jury - which consisted of Honne Dohrmann, Gurur Ertem, Ingrida Gerbutavičiūtė, Walter Heun and Anna Mülter - to be presented to a large (inter-)national audience within 5 days. The selection documented how vibrant and unique the German independent production scene and the companies of city and state theatres are!
The productions of the invited artists were very well received by the Munich audience as well as by the 500 registered professional visitors from 45 different countries. A total of more than 150 artists were also present. The majority of these were strong female voices, since ten of the invited productions were choreographed by women - and this without any quota.
At the Goethe-Institut's traditional reception, the next host of TANZPLATTFORM DEUTSCHLAND was solemnly announced: the journey continues in 2022 in Berlin - HAU Hebbel am Ufer will be the next organizer.
