TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL: Hannover Edition 2020

Special times require a special TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL. And not digitally, but completely analogue, adapted to the conditions with the appropriate distance.

From September 12th, now extended until September, 14th, 2020, we will present the Hannover Edition in a much smaller format, but with the clear will to promote contemporary dance for at least three days - festively in the Herrenhausen Gardens and its Orangerie Herrenhausen. With this unusual festival edition, the 35th, the friends of dance shall be confronted with the variety of dance forms in the state capital. The Hannover Edition as a commitment to dance - an articulation of an art that stands for liveliness.

The Hannover Edition offers an evening program on all three days. The originally planned afternoon program has been cancelled.

The evening program in the Orangerie Herrenausen will begin at 8 p.m. with a one-hour tour d’Horizon of dance vocabulary.

It will present Michèle Seydoux and Giovanni Visone (both at the Staatsballett Hannover), as well as Francisco Baños Diaz (winner of this year's digitally held International Choreography Competition), Marco Goecke, choreographer and ballet director of the Staatsballett Hannover with the solo TUÉ, also passages from ZERO, with Minako Seki and Yumiko Yoshioka, a Commedia Futura production and excerpts from the work CHEER (on September, 12th and 13th), which Felix Landerer was previously only able to show via stream.

Dance at a distance and yet very close. Vive la danse!
