For the explore dance – Network dance for young audience, three partners – fabrik moves Potsdam, Fokus Tanz / Tanz und Schule e.V. Munich and K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg – have entered into a long-term cooperation to develop a sustainable structure for the production of contemporary dance pieces for young audiences. Among other things, the shared project involves inviting established choreographers over the course of three seasons to Potsdam, Munich and Hamburg in order to develop and present new pieces for young audiences.

Every city produces two formats per season – a pop-up to be shown in classrooms or in public spaces and a stage production. The artists open their workflow for children and teenagers in order to engage them in artistic exchange and allow them to partake in the creative process via various mediation formats such as workshops, visits to rehearsals and research sessions. This produces a knowledge transfer between artists and their young audiences, allowing them to mutually share views and thoughts. The workshops affiliated with the performances give the children and teenagers the chance to delve deeper into the pieces and their subject matter. explore dance emphasises the development of innovative forms and models in a conjunction of aesthetic education and artistic production.
