Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company


Open Grounds


One hallmark of dance as a performance art is its transience; at the same time, it is also a deeply social art form which brings together dancers, spectators and the choreographer for a certain period of time. The aesthetic experience is a communication process whose reiteration in dance plays a key role.

Eight members of the DresdenFrankfurtDanceCompany ensemble are spending a year engaging with topics such as humanity, society, body and movement, gender issues, feelings, social media and their influence on us, and the boundary between public and private – ultimately, with life in movement – in order to create extremely varied works from a wide range of perspectives.

Supported by the city of Dresden and the state of Saxony as well as the city of Frankfurt am Main and the state of Hesse. Company-in-Residence at HELLERAU – European Center for the Arts Dresden and the Bockenheimer Depot in Frankfurt am Main
