Tanz Bremen dance festival
17 to 24 March 2017, various venues
Tanz Bremen is an acclaimed international festival of contemporary dance and an unmissable cultural highlight of the city. This year, from 17 to 24 March, the festival will celebrate its 20th edition, looking back over the artists that have defined it and the positions, styles and themes that have been presented. In the past the programme has included distinguished names such as Alain Platel, Akram Khan, Stephen Petronio and Marie Chouinard, but also new talent at the start of their career. Some have polarised opinion, others have been amusing, touching or confounding. Many have moved boundaries and opened up new perspectives. At a time when populism and isolationism are gaining ground, the festival is dedicated to the question of how dance is responding to the current political climate. The biannual festival is accompanied by an extensive programme that includes exhibitions, films, workshops and audience Q&As, and presents the best of the international and regional dance scenes.
