Tanztreffen der Jugend
Information about Tanztreffen der Jugend 2020
As of August 2020
From among 51 entries, the jury selected 8 companies and soloists to be invited to the 7th Tanztreffen der Jugend in Berlin from 18 to 25 September 2020.
Congratulations to the selected dancers and their choreographers!
This year, Tanztreffen der Jugend will take place as a closed encounter. The invited companies, duos and soloists developed a format to present their works in short dance sequences, an introduction to the company, video projections and an interactive game. These will be followed by a moderated conversation between the artists and the participants of Tanztreffen der Jugend, an opportunity to talk about the piece and its creative process. Because of construction at Haus der Berliner Festspiele, Tanztreffen der Jugend will take place at Uferstudios in the Wedding district.
About Tanztreffen der Jugend
Founded in 2014, the national contest looks for pieces by young dance ensembles in schools, from structures or groups linked to the indie or professional (dance) theatre scene, who alone or under professional guidance find their own themes and express them in an artistic form using contemporary choreographies.
