We move together in an urban community. We live and live to see change. We are part o fit. The performance programme MITTENDRIN establishes a space for arts and culture that allows for the pressing questions of our community. The diverse pieces presented here have different approaches to their works, that pose a political, cultural, social and personal challenge.

Round Table I How intergenerative is contemporary dance?

For exchange and impulses, we have invited people from different institutions to the round table and devote ourselves to the question together: How intergenerative is contemporary dance?

Artistic Outreach – The Empathic Body

The format “Artistic Outreach – the empathic body” is centrally based on the transfer of choreographic methods …

Outreach I Querfeld-rein und Querfeld-raus

Querfeldein offers an accompanying education programme for young audiences: Querfeld-rein and Querfeld-raus. Querfeld-rein and Querfeld-raus tie in with the specific content and aesthetic themes of the respective plays.

Connecting artistic works on a regional, national and interntaional level is crucial for the development of structures in the dance world. Artists connect through different groups and networks, such as: Förderinitiative Tanzkunst und Alter, studiotrade (European network), BUZZ (Bundesverband Zeitgenössischer Zirkus e.V., Kölner Modell, Tanz in Schulen. The communication leads to a collective working and thinking, which has a fixed place at ehrenfeldstudios.
