Get ready for tanz nrw 19
From 8 to 19 May 2019, the seventh edition of the biennial festival tanz nrw will take place in nine cities in North Rhine-Westphalia. The festival gives an insight into the artistic work of the last two years of the choreographers and companies from NRW. For the first time in 2019, it will also present promising projects of the new generation of contemporary dance artists. As in 2015 and 2017, 6 graduates and artists at the very beginning of their careers will have the opportunity to work on their latest creations in the format SPRUNGBRETT <> Tanzrecherche NRW, in 4-week residencies at PACT Zollverein in Essen and at tanzhaus nrw in Düsseldorf, and to present excerpts of their research as part of the festival. For the first time, the Ringlokschuppen Ruhr in Mülheim, one of the Mittelzentren Tanz in NRW, is an associated partner of the festival.
Since 2007, the festival tanz nrw has been a successful model for the presentation of NRW as a dance state. Through the sustainable cooperation of several dance institutions and dance producers, it strengthens the public image and interest for dance in NRW - among the public and among experts - and establishes networking structures.
