DanceKiosk-Hamburg started 2005 as pilot project to create a new platform for the independent Contemporary Dance community in Hamburg. The festival developed a wide program: stage performances, lectures, different services for the general public and for the experts and dancers as well.
DanceKiosk-Hamburg’s main goal was the international networking of local and nationwide dancers as well as the dialogue with other artistic domains. The participants should work together for a large period of time, present each other their works, share practices in labs and make an interchange in the public discussions. Movement practice and the development of concepts should be increased. Dancers should deal as well with new work methods and learn to reflect about the performance arts. This should help the participant to understand dance as an art form which is permanently in change.
