The programme for the coming 37th edition of the festival from 1 to 11 September is due to go online on 14 July 2022.

In the meantime, here are a few hints at what awaits audiences at TANZtheater INTERNATIONAL 2022:

The participants in this year’s “Think Big” residency programme for young choreographers will present the results of their work with eight dancers on 3 September in the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover: Maria Chiara de’ Noblili, Anna Borrás and Roberto Tedesco are the emerging artists taking part in the project to foster young talents, which is being held this year for the eighth time in cooperation with the Staatsballett Hannover.

On 5 September, two young Hanover-based choreographers will offer insights into how they created their new productions in “Rehearsal Talk”: Mónica García Vicente and Robert Robinson will show excerpts of their pieces, talk about their work, and answer questions from the audience.

The festival finale on 11 September in the Schauspielhaus will be performed by eight young dancers aged between 18 and 25: They are Shechter II, the junior company of London-based choreographer Hofesh Shechter, here giving a breath-taking presentation of his highly physical dance language in “Contemporary Dance 2.0”.

Tickets for the festival events will be available from 14 July at all the ticket agencies listed under the “Tickets” button.
