In 2021, four project partners from Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein (Dachverband freie darstellende Künste in cooperation with K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie | Tanzplan Hamburg, the Kultur- und Bildungszentrum Bad Oldesloe and the Tanz und Performance Netzwerk Schleswig-Holstein) created tanz.nord, a cooperative structure for dance professionals from both federal German states. tanz.nord promotes regional exchange, strengthens the independent dance scene in the north and establishes new performance venues.
In addition to a performance programme in autumn, lab#3 will provide opportunities for working and networking in addition to the network-building activities that began in 2021. In addition, tanz.nord is committed to long-term audience development outside of urban centres by establishing partnerships with schools and offering an outreach programme that accompanies performances.
In cooperation with tanz.nord, showcase.nord aims to further strengthen artistic cooperation between the two federal German states of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein, to further develop the dance scene in Schleswig-Holstein and to open up new venues for dance.
showcase.nord creates space for dance makers from Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein to research and produce together for one year. The aim is to strengthen artistic cooperation across the borders of both federal states, to further develop the dance scene in Schleswig-Holstein and to make new places accessible for dance. By encouraging new productions, uniquely providing rehearsal space via showcase.residency and organizing digital networking meetings, showcase.nord strengthens the structural development of dance in both federal states as started by tanz.nord.
The tanz.nord project team consists of Fanny Roy (administration), Kirsten Burow, Annkathrin Knappe and Katharina Degen (project coordination and public relations).
