Tanzfabrik Berlin works as an internationally known centre for Contemporary Dance. It offers space for rehearsals, production, artistic and theoretic research, advanced training, further education, workshops and regular classes. Its main aim is to focus on development, presentation and agency of contemporary dance in all of its diversity of choreographic and performative approaches. This includes the promotion of young artists, the connection of theory and practice and international exchange.
4 studios and an incorporated studio stage in Kreuzberg have accommodated continous artistic and educational practice. The studio stage offers an intimate character and ideal frame for the visualisation of artistic processes. The studios host choreographers, dancers, performers and amateurs and a diverse range of advanced education projects (regular dance classes, performance projects, professional contemporary training, intensive workshops and the 10 month dance intensive programme).
Since 2010 additional spaces in Wedding at Uferstudios (14 studios) offer structural advancement to artistic production. Two new studios, rented by Tanzfabrik Berlin host our artists in residence. The bigger Uferstudio 14 enables more complex presentations. It hosts the yearly program series and the Biennale Tanznacht Berlin. www.tanznachtberlin.de
The Uferstudios GmbH accommodate the production studios of Tanzfabrik Berlin, the new Inter-University Center for Dance Berlin (HZT) by the University of the Arts (UDK) and Ernst Busch School (HfS) and further dance initiatives of Berlin. They cooperate with TanzRaum Network and constitute a centre of contemporary dance with independent choreographic projects, BA and MA Studies and a media centre.
Since 2005 Tanzfabrik Berlin is partner of the European Network Advancing Performing Arts Project
