Tanzmesse Online Platform

27 August 2020, 16.00 h CEST via Zoom Meetings

More than ever we need to stay united. Especially, in times of closed theatres, physical distancing and lockdowns, we feel the urge to reach out to the Tanzmesse community.

Join us for a digital trip to Düsseldorf and a discussion about "How to get dance back on the road? - Touring, artist's mobility & international collaboration".

Not only the impact of Covid-19 on the performing arts sector is huge but also the shifts in context that the pandemic has catalyzed are concerning artists and cultural professionals. What has become even more visible is the inequalities in our society and in the arts and this raises many big questions:

  • How do we as artists and cultural professionals address and deal with inequality in terms of access to funding and mobility in our work? What is the impact on artistic mobility and international collaboration?
  • How can equal access to mobility, funding and networking be provided in an international context?
  • How do we collaborate across power dynamics?
  • What are possible strategies to make international collaboration work in the current situation?

Share your experience with us, discuss with us, meet new and familiar colleagues, and enjoy some time with the Tanzmesse community.
