DIS-TANZEN Festival

from 8 to 10 July 2022 in Berlin

1,300 funded projects have already been completed, another 750 are currently in the process. After more than two years of pandemic and aid programmes, it is time to take stock - to take stock of the diversity of funded projects in the DIS-TANZEN programme!

The umbrella organisation Tanz Deutschland invites funding recipients from both sub-programmes of DIS-TANZEN to a joint festival - full of encounters, exchange, workshops, performances and time for networking.

The DIS-TANZEN Festival is a retrospective and at the same time an outlook into the future! For what has emerged in these last two years shows not only the diversity of artistic creation in the field of dance, but also the need to develop new forms of work, to revise existing funding concepts and to create new ones, and thus to continue to actively strengthen culture and especially dance, even in post-pandemic times. But there is one thing we want to do after this busy period: pause and look at the exciting projects that have come about thanks to DIS-TANZEN funding. 

We have planned workshops for those who have received funding, as well as expert workshops to delve deeper into project topics with you and create new input; pitching sessions for project presentations, joint discussion rounds, thought walls, performance evenings with excerpts from projects and last but not least - space and time to finally meet each other live!

The festival is from 08.07. to 10.07.2022. There is the possibility to either visit the event as a guest or to present your project as a funded person/speaker. To do so, you need to fill out an application; an agile programme curatorium consisting of some jury members from the application rounds and members of the DIS-TANZEN team of the DTD will make the selection.
The deadline for submitting projects is 31.03.2022.

We are looking forward to meeting you live!

Your DIS-TANZEN Team
