The aim of the regional dance-development concept is to strengthen dance as an ensemble art and enhance the local dance scenes in Bremen and Hanover. Under the artistic direction of Helge Letonja and Felix Landerer, an independent 10-strong dance ensemble is emerging in the production network in northwest Germany. The dance works created will be presented in Bremen, Hanover and other cities in the region. Over three seasons, TanzRAUM Nord – Global Moves will thus be opening up development, production and presentation spaces specifically for independent and local choreographers, and for the internationally established choreographers Helge Letonja and Felix Landerer. Productions and co-operations with the ensemble will also open up new fields of work for dance professionals working on the local scenes. In addition to the development of a regional tourist network, a comprehensive dance transfer programme will also be a fixed element of the overall concept to boost dance in the northwest region.
TanzRAUM Nord – Global Moves is a co-operation involving the states of Bremen and Lower Saxony, the cities of Bremen and Hanover, the cities’ municipal and state theatres (Theater Bremen and Niedersächsisches Staatstheater Hannover GmbH), the ballet company at the Oldenburgisches Staatstheater, the Internationale Tanztage Oldenburg festival, venues on the independent scene (Schwankhalle Bremen, Kulturzentrum Faust and Eisfabrik Hannover), other theatres in the region (LOT-Theater Braunschweig, Schlosstheater Celle and Deutsches Theater Göttingen) and international partners (Corzo Den Haag, Scenario Pubblico and Catania).
