»Auf einen Kaffee mit… tanz weit draußen«

The digital interview series with experts on dance in rural areas will continue with a kick-off event on June 13 from 9-10 am.

Every other Thursday from 9-10 am, choreographers, dance mediators and cultural managers will report on their experiences, places and projects with choreography, dance and dance mediation in rural regions in moderated discussions. They reflect on challenges and opportunities and engage in an exchange. In the new edition, we look beyond the horizon and invite cultural practitioners from other countries to share their best-practice experiences. The new edition will be moderated by Pascal Sangl from Tanzszene Baden-Württemberg.

From the vision to the realization of a project, from lone wolves to diverse collaborations, from the singular idea to sustainable structures – all those who want to take these steps in the countryside and need inspiration and support are cordially invited to “Auf einen Kaffee mit …”!
