How can dance platforms serve as instruments in support of international alliances? Visitors to the Dance Platform 2018 present examples from their specific local contexts and offer impressions of dance scenes in different regions of the world. How does the performance practice of dance and choreography impact on societies in different ways?

Impulses from: Nayse López (Panorama Festival, Rio de Janeiro, BR), Joanna Leśnierowska (Old Brewery New Dance, Poznan, PO), Qudus Onikeku (QDance Center, Lagos, NG), Sabrina Joy Tan (Bunga Arts Link, Manila, PH), Iris Hung (Bamboo Curtain Studio, Taipei, TW), Sabine Reich (The Association for Dance, Berlin, DE)
Host: Dr. Elisabeth Nehring (journalist)

Every morning, the ASSEMBLY is a meeting place for the public, artists, curators, and people engaged in the cultural sector. Whether in short thematic kick-off statements, in an arena, or in individual encounters—all of the participants are invited to take advantage of the light-flooded architecture of the SANAA building on the Zollverein site for a relaxed exchange.

Here, the artistic positions and questions raised by the Dance Platform can be dissected, interwoven and explored as well as placed in a broad social, local and global context.

The Dance Platform is also always an (inter)national exchange forum. Network partners, cultural institutes, artists, and multiplicators are invited to set their thoughts in motion and discuss current developments in society, science and the economy and how these interact with dance and choreography.
