Programm Launch


Highlighting Artistic Ideas & Values
The internationale tanzmesse nrw is organised by nrw landesbuero tanz and is the largest professional meeting for contemporary dance. As a forum for exchange, knowledge transfer and networking, the Tanzmesse is an important meeting place for international dance creators. Every two years at the end of August, up to 2,000 international exhibitors and visitors come together in Düsseldorf to present a broad spectrum of aesthetic expression and artistic practices.

From expo to marketplace of ideas
Founded in 1994 as Tanzmesse NRW, the international tanzmesse nrw concentrated primarily on the marketing and distribution of dance productions in its founding years. In the years that followed, it developed into the most important international meeting place for contemporary dance. Today, the focus is on networking between dance professionals and the exchange of knowledge.

The three sections Agora, Talk & Connect and the Performance Programme make up the international tanzmesse nrw.

Next edition: 31 August to 3 September 2022
