Making Production Visible - New Structures for the Independent Dance and Performance Scene


The aim of the founding initiative is to amplify the voices of regional artists and to create a productive and trusting environment for their artistic work.

A web presence with a dance calendar presents the upcoming works and projects of dance and performance artists and ensures greater visibility due to comprehensive public relations work.

The core of the ID_Tanzhaus FRM is an extensive residency program as well as professional consulting, which accompanies the artists from the concept of their project idea to the performance on an administrative, technical and artistic level. For working and rehearsing, the Tanzhaus Frankfurt Rhein-Main provides the artists with the studios and technical infrastructure of the Z - Center for Rehearsals and Research, also supported by ID_Frankfurt Independent Dance and Performance e.V.

In addition, the ID_Tanzhaus is a place for exchange, professional development, and networking between dancers and artists from various disciplines. Through public, interactive and participatory event formats such as showings, workshops and discussions, the interested public is invited to get to know the works, the dance-makers, and their projects.

The founding of the ID_Tanzhaus Frankfurt Rhein-Main also accompanies a reconsideration of previous work structures and production processes within cultural institutions. The ID_Tanzhaus sees itself explicitly as a host, with the artists and the facilitation of their projects at its center.
