International Perspectives


EDN started working with African partners in 2012 with the project Dance Dialogues Africa led by tanzhaus nrw.

Dance Dialogues Africa aimed to initiate long-term cooperative relationships between several dance centres in Africa (Mozambique, Mali, Tunisia, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Africa) and a number of key dance venues in Germany.

African partners included CulturArte (Maputo, MZ), Donko Seko (Bamako, ML), Ness El Fen (Tunis, TN), Studios Kabako (Kisangani, CD), and Vuyani Dance (Johannesburg, ZA).
