Body & Performance Practices

Body & Performance Practices is an extended training concept to promote the acquisition of various forms of knowledge from the perspective of dance and choreography. The format intends to generate a place where current discourses can be experienced in practice.

In addition to an emphasis on Workshops that focus on exploring new artistic approaches, the programme offers regular physical, technical training to professional dancers in the classes marked ‘Advanced Level’. The classes marked ‘Open Level’ provide insights into the world of choreography and contemporary performance for artists from other disciplines. Moreover, formats such as TQW Atelier, Workshops on Stage and In Solidarity with Ukraine invite dance enthusiasts with no previous experience to discover contemporary dance and its methods with renowned choreographers.
