connected to the world

Founded in 1988 as a regional festival, TANZ Bremen is now one of the Hanseatic city’s outstanding international cultural events and one of the most important festivals for contemporary dance in Germany. It presents highly acclaimed international guest performances by renowned choreographers and at the same time offers a stage for the regional dance scene, for young talent, for experiments and new departures. The Biennale thus provides an insight into the current spectrum of dance expression and questions.

Thanks to the cooperation with various cultural institutions in Bremen, TANZ Bremen accompanies an extensive supporting program with workshops, discussions, films and exhibitions.

In 2021 TANZ Bremen goes outdoors – the Bremen audience can experience contemporary dance in the middle of the city. In addition, TANZ Bremen 2021 cooperates with the Theater Bremen and the Schwankhalle for various event formats.

The next edition of TANZ Bremen will take place from May 4 to May 11, 2022.
