7TH DANCE EDUCATION BIENNIAL 2020 HAMBURG & FOKUS TANZ #6

CITY OF DANCES

Two of Hamburg's most important dance events all in one week: Parallel to the 6thedition of Fokus Tanz at Kampnagel, the Hamburg Ballet School, the Bundesjugendballett, Kampnagel and K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg are also organising the 7th Dance Education Biennial, a networking meeting of the younger dance generation. 150 students from educational institutions across Germany and the entire globe are coming together for one week in Hamburg to broaden their horizons. In training sessions and workshops, they will exchange ideas about the significance of their own art form as part of social processes and look at the links between working methods, definitions and exclusion/inclusion. In a public symposium, they will discuss how resources are used and how digital knowledge about dance can be integrated into curricula. In addition, students will present their own work in a total of 18 performances, which are embedded as short pieces in the Fokus Tanz programme.

At the same time, the choreographers of the 6thedition of Fokus Tanz will be negotiating their inherited legacy in their own way and charting new territories on Kampnagel’s stages. At the end of the week, Kampnagel and the Hip Hop Academy will host a joint dance battle that brings all dance disciplines together. Last but not least, Kampnagel and K3 are taking this grand meeting of minds as a chance to kick-off a new preparatory dance training programme for Hamburg. 
After the Dance Congress 2009 and the Dance Platform 2014, City of Dances is one more step in securing Hamburg’s status as a city of dance on the international arena.
