TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL 2019 - news

On 28 June 2019 the programme for TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL 2019 (29 August – 7 September) will be published and advance ticket sales start at the box office in Künstlerhaus. 

In the meantime, here are a few appetizers from the programme:

The first festival weekend will include a grand reunion with the Belgian festival favourites Peeping Tom in Schauspielhaus: They will be showing the last part of their surreal family trilogy, “Kind”, on 1 September. On 2 September, Ballhof Eins will present an alluring piece of Canadian avantgarde dance with the festival debut of choreographer Catherine Gaudet, “The Fading of the Marvelous”. A sterling double feature awaits audiences on 4 September: Israeli choreographer Hillel Kogan is showing his duet “The Swan and the Pimp” in Ballhof Eins, in which he takes a tongue-in-cheek look at power relations, and on the same evening Ballhof Zwei is hosting the ten-minute solo “Äffi” by Hanover’s new ballet director, Marco Goecke.

Last year’s 33rd edition of the TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL festival from 30 August to 8 September was a major talking point of the late summer. Visit our archive for press reviews, texts and casts & credits on all eleven productions featured in Hanover in 2018.
