That was TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL 2015

2015 was our big year: TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL celebrated its 30th anniversary edition from 3rd to 13th September in the theatres of Hanover. The richly packed programme of this pearl jubilee edition of the festival encompassed twelve productions by international choreographers from Belgium to Bangladesh; from Germany, Israel, France, Slovenia, the Netherlands and Canada. It included four world premieres and two German premieres. The ten diverse evenings of dance were attended by around 92% capacity audiences in finest festival mood.

To mark the festival’s anniversary, the lion’s share of the programme was devoted to those dance companies whose work has been a regular feature of TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL over the years and who have shown many of their latest productions here in Hanover. In addition, however, the festival also showcased a number of upcoming talents, including Flemish choreographer Jan Martens, and Hanoverian choreographer Felix Landerer, who marked his debut at the festival by staging a world premiere. Further world premieres were contributed by the young choreographers of the fourth edition of the artists’ residency programme “Think Big” 2015.
