Can virtual reality be an opportunity in children’s education? In Der schwarze Spiegel, one of the TANZ:DIGITAL II projects, the TAFI Team followed a class of students from the 116. Oberschule in Dresden during a special art workshop: interacting with a VR installation, between play and reflection, the kids are able to create a dance piece together with dancers from the Landesbühnen Sachsen – who are not physically present, but only through their digital avatars. Conceived by the TMA Hellerau under the supervision of media teacher Katharina Groß, the young students learn to deal with new technologies in a non-passive, creative and free way.


In the context of tanz:digital II, the German Dance Film Institute Bremen is building a bridge between the artists and the public. In concrete terms, this means that “making-ofs” will be created for around 10 individual projects, preparing 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 installations.


Tanz:digital II is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media in the NEUSTART KULTUR programme, aid programme DIS-TANZEN of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland.
