(c) Seda Demiriz, Future Lab - Visions and directions for the regional independent dance and performance scene

The Zukunftslabor is ID_Tanzhaus Frankfurt Rhein-Main’s think tank for imagining and designing the future together. 

In the context of a moderated discussion, the Zukunftslabor invites you to discuss pressing issues such as sustainable production infrastructures for the local independent dance and performance scene, funding and resources, availability and distribution of rehearsal spaces, and access to production support and performance venues.

The goal is to develop visions and perspectives together, to find ideas and solutions. We would be happy if you feel inspired to actively shape the dance and performative future of the local scene and get into conversation with us!

What are burning issues for you? 

Since 2021, four moderated Future Labs have taken place. The sessions and their topics have been determined with members of the community and the ID_Tanzhaus FRM team. 

Future Labs are held in English and in German. Participation is open to members of the freelance dance and performance community in Frankfurt Rhein-Main. Participants are paid 25 Euro/Hour (brutto). 

The next Zukunftslabor about performance venues takes place on Friday, 20 September 2024, 2 - 6 pm, at Z – Zentrum für Proben und Forschung, Schmidtstr. 12, 60326 Frankfurt. Register now!

Since the first Zukunftslabor in June 2021 questions around performance venues have come up time and time again in discussions. In the survey after the first Zukunftslabor many colleagues expressed their desire for a multifunctional space suited for presentations, exchanges, workshops, rehearsals and research. We would now like to examine this question further. What should such a place look like? What should it offer? Is this even a realistic idea? What would be the ideal way to communicate with artists and groups? Building upon your manifold experiences, we would like to get into conversation with you.

Registration deadline: Thursday, September 5, 2024.
