Workshops & Performances
July 28 – August 7, 2020
For 29 years, TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA has been bringing together dancers, choreographers and dance enthusiasts from all over the world in Munich every summer for 10 days to train in various workshops and intensive courses, to try out their own choreographic material, exchange ideas and see current works by important international artists.
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 from July 28 to August 7 in Munich in a safe and responsible way for and with you.
The workshop program will go online on June 25, 2020 and the registration will open. Advance booking for the individual performances starts in July.
Please follow the latest announcements regarding further program updates on our website!
We‘ll keep you updated!
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.
