The Performance Programme for Tanzmesse 2024 will be selected by Co-Directors Isa Köhler and Katharina Kucher together with the Associate Curators Julia Asperska, Dan Daw, Natacha Melo and Quito Tembe. The programme shall give a broad insight into the international dance scene and present works of high artistic quality from different contexts.

In the Performance Programme, artists will present selected full-length performances on stage, in public spaces and digitally to international visitors and a public audience. This includes works aimed at intergenerational or young audiences. In the Open Studios, artists present their artistic productions through a short physical presentation and a Q&A. In an Insight, professionals give a media-based presentation to share production methods, project ideas, networks, collaborations, and other endeavours in the field of dance.
Please note that only artists, companies, individual professionals and organisations represented at an Area or Networking Island in the Agora (Exhibition Space) may hand in a proposal.
Proposals will be accepted from June to 15 September 2023.
