tanz*werk kassel is on its way!

On the way to a dance house for Kassel.

Last year, with the support of the Cultural Office of the City of Kassel, the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art and various foundations and sponsors, we received federal funding from the Tanzpakt for our concept of a "temporary dance house". With the idea of the Tanzhaus temporär, tanz*werk kassel e.V. wants to show that the dance professionals in Kassel have the potential to stage a stationary dance house. We would like a venue for dance and performance with a stage and rehearsal rooms. We think that the time is ripe for this in Kassel.

The tanz*werk kassel e.V. - an association of dance makers from the independent dance scene in Kassel - will regularly organise temporary dance houses in Kassel with performances, workshops, lectures, performances, exhibitions etc. with artists from the Kassel dance scene as well as with artists from Germany and Europe. In addition, an international dance festival will be realised in 2023 and a symposium on current topics in dance in 2024. Dates, venues and information about the events will be published via the dance calendar, the tanz*werk website and the local press.

Kassel can look forward to 2 years of interesting dance programmes from the independent dance scene.

Tanzhaus temporär N° 1 will kick things off with a performance walk in Kassel's Bergpark on 24 September from 4 - 6 pm.

We are looking forward to having a lively exchange with you, the audience, about our artistic work through the performances and the supporting programme.

" Ophelia - oder die Zeit ist aus den Fugen"
a performance walk

The 1st temporary dance house of tanz*werk kassel follows in the footsteps of Lucius Burckhardt's science of walking.

Starting at the Lac, the walk will along the watercourse. Spaziergangswissenschaft is a cultural-scientific and aesthetic method that aims to make us aware of and expand the conditions of our perception of our surroundings. Today, in the time of crisis and extreme environmental pollution, the walk " Ophelia - oder die Zeit ist aus den Fugen" takes up this method and translates it into a moving side specific performance by means of dance, music and language.

Performers: Angela Reimuth, Christa Stöffelbauer, Ilana Reynolds, Marcus Beuter, Marie Simson, Rosalie Kubny, Verena Piwonka,

Curated by Agnetha Jaunich and Bettina Helmrich


Workshop 09/24/2022 2 - 3:30 p.m

Meeting place Kaskadenwirtschaft

I see something you don't see -
a moving and mind-blowing workshop

How do we see? How do we perceive our surroundings? The workshop offers the opportunity to physically experience these questions in a moving form. Inspired by Lucius Burkhardt's "Spaziergangswissenschaften" - a cultural-scientific and aesthetic method that aims to make us aware of and expand the conditions of our perception of our surroundings - we will move improvisationally in the Bergpark in the workshop by means of perception-oriented tasks, expand our patterns of seeing and moving and experience our bodies in nature.

The workshop will be led by Agnetha Jaunich and Bettina Helmrich.

Please come in comfortable clothes and suitable shoes.

Cost 10€

In combination with the performance walk: 20€ / 15€ reduced.
