Tanztreffen der Jugend

Tanztreffen der Jugend 2021 digital: On the Move

On 17 September, the Tanztreffen der Jugend 2021 will open. The audience is cordially invited to join us digitally in the festival events!

This year, the Tanztreffen der Jugend will take place as a meeting of the award winners in the Schiffbauergasse art and culture quarter in Potsdam, including the fabrik Potsdam. In view of the pandemic situation and the required distance rules, the meeting must be held as a closed event.

Nevertheless, the audience will have the opportunity to travel to Potsdam with the ensembles and the national competition team! In our digital festival centre, viewers can experience the Dance Meeting of the Youth almost up close: The daily programme presents the selected dance productions of this year's edition in a live stream. In addition, the performances are available in the media library for the duration of the festival. In the digital festival centre, visitors can also move between the performances with their two-dimensional avatars, exchange information with other guests via voice function or video chat, enjoy selected programme items of the supporting programme or get in touch directly with the dancers on site: Among other things, there are “immersive access portals” that invite dancers from both worlds to “hybrid dancing”.

Day passes are available in the digital festival centre

The digital festival centre was created in collaboration with Studio for Infinite Possibilities, illustrations: Ai-Nhu Vo.

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.
