The Dance Platform in Germany is a testing ground for artistic tendencies and developments of international note in choreography, dance and performance. The 2018 edition presents outstanding contemporary productions created in the last two years with substantial support from German partners.
Initiated in 1990, the biennal Dance Platform constitutes the most important event on the contemporary dance calendar in Germany. Taking place in rotating cities, the occasion presents outstanding dance and performance productions from the past two years and brings together presenters, artists and the general public for a lively and informed exchange.
The Dance Platform is co-organised by the community of institutions who have hosted it in the past and who actively support the promotion of contemporary dance in Germany. As of 2018, this includes PACT Zollverein. Since 2004, the Goethe-Institut and the International Theatre Institute are partners of the Dance Platform.
