Tanztreffen der Jugend

Berliner Festpiele  

17 – 23 Sep 2021Young dance

The eight-day Dance Meeting of Youth sees itself as a place of learning where young dancers and their choreographers meet in various formats.

Every evening, one of the invited ensembles presents its production in front of an audience in the stage programme. Each ensemble is given one day to set up and rehearse and is supported by the Berliner Festspiele's technical team. All performances will be recorded.

The Campus of the Tanztreffen der Jugend is aimed at the young participants. It is divided into impulse and intensive workshops, performance talks and discussions.

The forum programme for choreographers, teachers and students includes workshops and discursive formats such as performance talks and discussions on key topics. The focus is on collegial exchange and reflection on one's own artistic practice in working with young people.
