The Rhine-Main Dance Platform rings in the beginning of a three-year cooperation between Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and the Hessische Staatsballet. It is the very first time that an international production house and the dance department of two state theatres join forces to develop a wide range of production, performance and outreach formats. For this, they draw on the experience of Tanzlabor 21, which operated at Mousonturm from 2006 until 2015. In addition to artist residencies spanning several cities in the region, the Platform is also planning mobile dance productions to penetrate urban and rural areas beyond conventional theatre spaces, as well as an joint international festival that brings together regionally produced pieces with performances by international guests. By initiating this joint venture, the cooperation partners seek to sustainably empower dance makers and dance itself in the region, create a strong regional and national network for people and institutions working in the field of dance and excite new audiences for dance in the Rhine-Main region.
