BE OUR GUEST! Gastgeberschaft

TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund (2018-2021)

TANZPAKT – Stadt – Land – Bund

With Gastgeberschaft (Hospitality), MOUVOIR/Stephanie Thiersch is developing discursive formats for artists, experts and other interested parties. A space will be created for discussing practical experiences from a political viewpoint, and using the open and interdisciplinary means and methods of an independent company. The independent scene has been falling behind in areas where permanent theatres have been developing, namely in the establishment of relationships with audiences as well as invitations to support artists, themes and focuses. The funding awarded to the Gastgeberschaft project is intended to make up this deficit. Come and BE OUR GUEST!

Funded by TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund with the support of the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen, Kulturamt der Stadt Köln.
