‘Dance pieces for young audiences’ Atelier in Hamburg

1st – 3rd May, ‘Dance pieces for young audiences: For whom? Why? How to address the target group?’ Atelier (working title) hosted by K3 – Centre for Choreography | Tanzplan Hamburg

Part of EDN’s Audience Development strand, this Atelier will be focused on active participation and will enable professionals to develop strategies to address, reach and include young audiences.

Organised as part of the first edition of “Explore dance – Festival for young audiences” it will give to the participants the opportunity to watch up to seven new dance pieces for young audiences and encounter the artists, to exchange with other colleagues on short best practice presentations from different parts of Europe. Additionally there will be some work sessions to exchange and discuss with the choreographers and dancers invited as part of the festival.

We invite dance house directors, curators/programmers and dramaturges active in the field of dance for young audiences, staff members working in PR and outreach as well as artists experienced or interested in working with young audiences.
