turns 30!

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.

This summer, TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA celebrates its 30th anniversary!


Based on last year's experiences, we are very confident that the anniversary can take place in an analogous way and are pleased that the following choreographers, dancers and instructors have already agreed to teach this summer for professionals and/or dance-loving amateurs at TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA: Esther Balfe, Veronica Fischer, Stephan Herwig, Vangelis Legakis, Bosmat Nossan, Charlie Morrissey, Virginie Roy and Chiang-Mei Wang will give classes in various contemporary dance techniques and bodywork; Louise Vanneste will teach a choreographic lab for professionals; Jess Curtis is back with an intensive course in Audio Description; as is Jakub Zeman with Fighting Monkey. More are to come!

We will publish the detailed workshop program in spring!
