July 30 – August 9, 2024

From July 30 to August 09, Munich will once again become a hot spot for contemporary dance. As part of its 33th TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA, JOINT ADVENTURES will host a top-class workshop program in 8 studios throughout the city, showcasing contemporary dance in all its diversity. International professionals and dance lovers of all levels, ages and physical abilities will get their money's worth in the 5- or 10-day workshops.

Whether you want to explore and develop your dance skills, get to know new techniques and artistic approaches, work intensively with specific choreographers or seek rebalancing in somatic classes such as Tai-Chi Dao-Yin and Feldenkrais - you will find what you are looking for in the TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA program. 

After the workshops, head to the performances at TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA! Every evening, the program features the latest styles and aesthetics of internationally renowned artists researching contemporary dance and its interface with other art forms. This year, JOINT ADVENTURES presents the world premiere of a new work by Munich-based choreographer Ceren Oran, "All the Way Around" by Meg Stuart / Damaged Goods (BE/DE), the latest solo "New Old" by Alma Söderberg (SE), "Spelling Spectacle" by Ingrid Berger Myhre (NO/BE) and "Under the Flesh" by Bassam Abou Diab (LB), among others.

NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ (NPN) is a funding program. It supports the mobility of contemporary artistic work on a national, European and international level. Funding is provided for guest performances in the field of dance and theatre within Germany. In the field of dance, funding is available for productions that are touring abroad. The creation of new dance productions is also supported.

With STEPPING OUT, the NPN is part of the NEUSTART KULTUR support programme of the Federal Government and promotes new artistic ways of presenting dance.

With the Impulse Fund for Dance & Theatre, new, cross-federal state collaborations are promoted that open up the potential for development and enable new “tangents” of cooperation.




On September 13, 2024, together with Dachverband Tanz and Bureau Ritter, we are planning the day of action "Dance creates cohesion" in Berlin.
In the center of Berlin - in front of the Brandenburg Gate - we will show the power and creativity of dance to connect people. With performances and lecture demonstrations, hands-on activities, interviews and jam sessions, we want to engage in a great exchange of experiences. We want to network, encourage each other and dance together.
The day will culminate in a large demonstration with dance and for dance. Statements by artists and politicians will be interspersed with music and dance. The diversity and potential of dance will be made visible in the public space and brought into the political conversation. We want to talk and dance together - #TogetherWeDance!

Join us, show your dance!

NPN-STEPPING OUT, a NEUSTART KULTUR initiative of the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, has now seen its fifth and probably final round of allocations. Thanks to a further increase in funding, another 164 projects can be subsidized with a total of around 5.1 million euros. The focus is on projects that open up analog, digital or media-based public spaces as well as new performative spaces and fields of artistic practice for dance.

The total project budget of NPN-STEPPING OUT thus amounts to approximately 18.5 million euros, which enabled a total of 555 projects in the field of independent contemporary dance during the pandemic. In the fifth round, the jury, consisting of Sabine Leucht (critic, Bavaria), Sven Till (artistic director fabrik Potsdam, Brandenburg) and Christian Watty (artistic director euro-scene Leipzig, Saxony), approved 56 percent of the projects submitted. A total of 291 applicants submitted their project ideas – an overwhelmingly high number!

An overview listing all projects that have been funded in the fifth round can be found here:


A Dance Academy Camp

Juli 30 – August 03, 2024

SOLID GROUND trains, educates and creates important contacts to the international professional dance scene for dance and choreography students shortly before their final year. The programme serves as an orientation in the future international working environment, even before dance training has been completed. In an atmosphere of exchange and encounters, you can not only network with other students, but also get to know choreographers from current artistic practice. SOLID GROUND is entering its fifth round this summer and will take place during the first half of TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA.
