Selection 2021

For the Theatertreffen der Jugend 2021, the jury selected twelve ensembles out of 54 applications.

Even if everything else had to come to a standstill in past months, young dancers and choreographers never stopped moving! They surprised us with 54 submissions from 12 federal states. A jury of nine experts and the team organising the National Contests appreciate the commitment shown by these young artists. They congratulate all companies for having managed to find their own creative paths and to develop new forms of production in the face of these great challenges.

From among all submissions, the jury made a selection of 12 remarkable productions from 6 federal states, which illustrate the wide range of formats and styles developed by young dance creatives this year: They choreographed solos, duets or ensemble productions; they produced stage pieces and films, developed dialogue formats between stage dancers and digital images and they created site specific works in the public sphere. The selected dancers and companies will be invited to join Tanztreffen der Jugend from 17 to 24 September 2021 to present their works, to gain new impulses in a wide range of workshops and to exchange ideas with each other.

Congratulations to the companies who were selected for the 2021 Tanztreffen der Jugend!
