Last season a format was created in co-operation with tanzhaus nrw that will continue to reinvent itself afresh. Both dancers from the company and tanzhaus nrw’s Factory Artists are invited to work and experiment with the ensemble. What do state and independent theatres have to say to each other? What links can be forged? What can we learn from each other? How do we question dance and expand our thinking about it? Or do we plunge into cold water together? This requires experiments, trials and new arrangements – preferably in secure surroundings where participants are open to unexpected outcomes. Establishing such a lively space doesn’t just take courageous artists, but also an open and curious audience. Let us look forward to this together.
