“With tanz:digital, the umbrella organization Tanz Deutschland, in cooperation with dance archives, production houses and the model projects funded within the project, is pursuing the goal of making dance a virtual and immersive experience and presenting it online as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR program.

With tanz:digital, dance artists*, dance ensembles and institutions of dance (venues, archives, dance schools, mediation projects, etc.) are to be strengthened in the medial presentation of artistic productions.” Dachverband Tanz Deutschland


The German Dance Film Institute Bremen has made it its task in this framework to build a bridge between the motivation of the realizing artists:inside and the thus focused circle of users. In concrete terms, this means that “making ofs” will be created for about 10 individual projects, which will prepare potential users, whether they are tech-savvy or not, for what to expect if they want to entrust themselves to one of the many new offerings.


The Making Ofs will follow the highly unique production process of each of the selected projects on one day of filming, making the choice of technical, aesthetic, and possibly educational means accessible to a wide audience in a film of about 10 minutes about each project. Interviews with the artistic directors and other project participants will complement the film report.


The German Dance Film Institute Bremen will accompany selected projects as part of “tanz:digital II”
